P29.8-M projects funded by Japan in Nueva Ecija

mstlogoZARAGOZA, Nueva Ecija—The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) and the municipal government launched on Thursday P29.8-million worth of projects funded by the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) covering a farm-to-market road (FMR), potable water system (PWS) and day-care centers (DCCs) benefiting 4,904 local residents in two Agrarian Reform Communities (ARC).

DAR regional director for Central Luzon Arnel Dizon led the launch of the projects joined by provincial agrarian reform officer (PARO) 2 Romeo Cordero, PARO 1 Jocelyn Ramones, Mayor Lovella Belmonte-Espiritu and other officials.

The projects consist of the 2.6-kilometer, P18.5-million FMR in barangays Sta. Lucia Young and Old covered by the ARC, PWS for 216 households in Sta. Lucia Old and the repair of DDCs in all 19 barangays of this third-class town.

Belmonte-Espiritu said the FMR would enable about 3,700 residents to transport produce to buyers.

Zaragoza is largely agricultural with 6,246 hectares of the territory devoted to farming with a population of around 42,200 people.

“The local residents have suffered long and hard waiting for the road network to be concreted. It has been a long wait. Now, they can finally cross the road in the two barangays without having to worry about the bad road condition,” Belmonte-Espiritu said.

Cordero said the three projects under the Agrarian Reform Infrastructure Support Project (ARISP) also involved agriculture and agribusiness development (AAD) and institutional development; along with  grassroots participatory planning and budgeting and mechanized palay production.

ARISP is a JICA-funded project wherein the local government unit (LGU) and recipients shell out their equity.

Zaragoza earmarked P2.4 million and bankrolled four other road projects spanning 15 kilometers worth P17 million.

The town pitched in P2.5 million to put up an elevated water tank for 216 households.

Belmonte-Espiritu said 914 children would benefit from day-care service worth P950,000.

Jocelyn Ramones, PARO 1, said a P4.5-million water system was turned over to the Canaan West Potable Water Service Cooperative in Rizal town for the benefit of 130 households.

She said DAR earlier turned over the P18-million 5.37-km FMR, linking up town’s four barangays—Canaan East, Canaan West, Casiligan and Gen. Luna.
