piaSaguday, Quirino, July 7 (PIA)—The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) and the Land Bank of the Philippines had released another P1 million interest-free loan to the Sto Tomas, Tres Reyes, Dibul and Gamis cooperative or Sto. TresDGam farmers cooperative under the DAR-LANDBANK Credit Assistance Program for Program Beneficiaries Development (CAP-PBD).

The 33 farmers are also given free crop insurance through the subsidy for DAR-PCIC program.

According to Frelita O. Bartolome, information officer, the loan is payable within 180 days but if the farmers could harvest earlier, they are given the option to pay early so they could avail of the rebates.

“This is already the seventh release of the cooperative because the members were able to maintain their good standing  in their previous loans,” Bartolome said.

Aside from the P1 million loan assistance, the cooperative has an existing communal fund of P700,000 as interest earnings  from its previous.

The cooperative has 91 active members. It is chaired  by Jose Laroza. (TCB/PIA 2-Quirino)
