QUIRINO, ISABELA - The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) has turned over infrastructure projects worth P32.6 million to the local government in two Quirino towns.
DAR Undersecretary Rosalina Bistoyong said the DAR provided the province with farm-to-market roads and a potable water system for the farmers and residents of Las Maricar Agrarian Reform Communities in Saguday and Aglipay municipalities.
The projects include the 3.9-kilometer Rizal-La Paz road, the 2-km Rizal-Cardenas road in Saguday, and the 1.98-kilometer Ligaya-Dagupan road in Aglipay. A potable water supply system was also put up to provide safe drinking water to people in Saguday.
“These infrastructure projects are significant in achieving progress in rural communities. These facilities were not only implemented to make life easier for our farmers but also to sustain the development of their communities,” Bistoyong said.
DAR Regional Director Marjorie Alzate said the provision of these support services is part of the government’s mandate to increase the economic activities of Quirino.
The projects were implemented under the Agrarian Reform Infrastructure Support Projects (ARISP).
