40 Masbate farmers now landowners

news reg 1 pix 1 sept. 29 2017The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) recently distributed Certificates of Land Ownership Award (CLOAs) to 40 agrarian reform beneficiaries (ARBs) in Barangay Cagay, Masbate City.

DAR Municipal Agrarian Reform Program Officer Edwin C. Yanzon said the landholding involved has an area of 75.7782 hectares. It was formerly owned by Antonio Dela Rosa, Sr. and was acquired by the DAR through the Voluntary Offer to Sell (VOS) scheme.

"We carried out this activity not only to formally handover these land titles but also to remind you that as empowered farmers you have the responsibility to make your lands productive so you can have a stable livelihood, pay your amortizations and taxes, and help in the economic growth of your community," Provincial Agrarian Reform Program Officer II Felix E. Fruto said to the ARBs.

After the distribution of titles, the DAR installed some of the ARBs who are not yet in possession of their awarded lands.

Agrarian Affairs Specialist Joseph B. Malapaz, Barangay Cagay Chairman Nilo N. Bueta and Barangay Agrarian Reform Council Chaiperson Nila N. Bueta joined the DAR Provincial and City office team during the installation of farmers.news reg 1 pix 2 sept. 29 2017

"Our goal here is to ensure that all the ARBs are formally installed with full knowledge of the metes and bounds of their respective lots. We want them to start in the right and confident direction so that they may be able to harmoniously cultivate their lands," Fruto said.
