Dump trucks distributed to ARBOs in Negros Occ

dailyguardianBACOLOD City – The Department of Agrarian Reform-Negros Island Region distributed 15 units of brand new 10-wheeler dump trucks worth 85.6 million to 15 Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries Organizations (ARBOs) in Negros Occidental under its Agrarian Reform Community Connectivity and Economic Support Services (ARCCESS) program.



The turnover held at the Pavilion Hotel here was attended by Dar-NIR Regional Director Stephen Leonidas and DAR Undersecretary for Finance Planning and Administrative Office Felix Perry Villanueva.

The provision of the Common Service Facilities to ARBOs is one of the major components of the ARCCESS Program of DAR.

This project aims to assist the ARBOs to develop their business enterprise in order to support the Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries. CSF distribution is not only for the livelihood but it also compliments the Business Development Services and Agri-Extension Services programs of the department.

Eight units of 10-wheeler JAC Dump Trucks were given to ARBOS of DAR- North while 7 units were given to DAR-South and are expected to benefit a total of 1,624 beneficiaries.

Recipients for the DAR-North are: Nieves Agro-Agrarian Reform Cooperative of Salvador Benedicto, Hda. Anita AR Cooperative of Escalante City, CASA Agrarian Reform Cooperative of Talisay City, Miarasol Development Corporation Agrarian Reform Cooperative of Sagay City and Nabinay AR Cooperative, Hda. Bernardita AR Cooperative, san Juan Torena AR Cooperative and Dalayapan AR Cooperative all of Cadiz City.

The seven recipients in the southern part are: Gen. Malvar Agrarian Reform Cooperative, Casal-agan Agrarian Reform Cooperative, and Viscaya Agrarian Reform Cooperative of Pontevedra, Minoro Isabel Agrarian Reform Cooperative of La Castellana, Occidental Negros Agrarian reform Planters Association, Minaba Agrarian reform Cooperative and Crossing Ibos Farmers Credit Cooperative all of Kabankalan City.

Ronald Gareza, DAR-NIR assistant regional director, said during his talk on the overview of the ARCCESS program that the recipient ARBOs have good credit standing with the bank, maintained their farm implements well and managed their farms excellently.

Gareza said these ARBOs will serve as models for other organizations and will eventually help the smaller beneficiary groups in the province.

“From 2011, P332 million were given under the CSF while P364 million were for the Agricultural Productivity Credit Program or APCP. The CSF in Negros Occidental alone totaled P183 million,” he added.

DAR has already released P118.7 million to DAR-North 1, another P110.6 million to DAR-South, and P135 million to Negros Oriental.

“From the inception of the APCP up to this current time, the program has already catered to 4,668 borrowers that covers 8,341 hectares making the ARCCESS program successful in the Negros Island,” Gareza added.
