Farmers' group in Isabela get cash aid for balut-making project

PNABACOLOD CITY, June 9-- The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) has given a PHP250,000 livelihood assistance to a group of farmers in Isabela, Negros Occidental for its balut-making project.

The Camangcamang Integrated Farmers Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries Association (CAINFARBA) with 56 members will manage the project.

The amount given to the group includes PHP150,000 for the purchase of 500 heads of duck and incubator machines; PHP40,000 for capability building; and PHP60,000 for technical training.

Provincial Agrarian Reform Program Officer II Lucrecia Taberna said in a report on Friday the project aimed to help the recipient-Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries (ARBs) to establish livelihood activities that would generate income, restore productivity, and create new opportunities for better and sustainable rural employment.

“It is also positioned to develop sustainable enterprises anchored with harmonious environment which will result to increase in productivity and household income,” she added.

Earlier, the DAR also allocated PHP400,000 for the implementation of the Partnership Against Hunger and Poverty (PAHP) with Barangay Banog-Banog Agrarian Reform Farmers Association (BBARFA) also in Isabela town.

Taberna said Barangay Banog-Banog was the lone recipient of the PAHP project in Negros Occidental.

The project, which includes project-related technology training, and purchase of machineries and equipment, will start within the year, benefiting at least 1,000 residents, particularly farmer-members of BBARFA headed by president Rodito Balasabas.

The PAHP, a collaboration between the DAR, Department of Agriculture (DA) and Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), seeks to reduce hunger and poverty in selected rural communities by increasing the income of households of agrarian reform beneficiaries (ARBs).(Erwin P. Nicavera/PNA)
