A total of 44 hectares composed of 17 lots of the Porferia vda de los Baǹos (PVDB) Inc. landholdings in barangay Maogog, Jovellar, Albay are to be divided among the identified beneficiaries.  The subject lots are part of the 220 hectares landholdings of PVDB Inc. with Emancipation Patent under Operation Land Transfer. 

Hon. Judge Gomez said that the beneficiaries are very lucky to have been given the opportunity to own the land they till for many years.  She encouraged the beneficiaries to work hard and make their land more productive.  The Hon. Judge has also explained the contents of the APFU documents in the vernacular to ensure that the beneficiaries have clearly understood all the conditions stated therein.  Judge Gomez has also required each beneficiary to present their valid ID to countercheck their identities.regV2

On the other hand, Jovellar Municipal Agrarian Reform Officer (MARO) Hilario Manzanades said that he is working out for the formal organization of these beneficiaries into an association in order to access programs from government and non-government organizations.  This is in anticipation to developing the area into a sugarcane plantation as another producer of panocha “kalamay” and muscovado sugar in the province. <DAR5_gp_olayres>
