Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) officials of the Central, Regional, Provincial and Municipal office conducted monitoring of an ongoing Agrarian Reform Infrastructure Support Project III (ARISP III), a rehabilitation and improvement of a farm-to-market road (FMR), on April 7, 2014 in San Pascual, a municipality located in the northern tip of the Burias island of Masbate.


Luis B. Bueno, Jr., Regional Director of the Department of Agrarian Reform Region V headed the inspection team composed of Engrs. Jayciel Bartolome and Imelda Lambojon, representatives from the Central Project Monitoring Office (CPMO) of DAR Central Office, Yukihiro Kawahara, ARISP Consultant, Samuel R. Ongcal, Jr., OIC-PARPO II and Herald R. Tambal, OIC-PARPO I of DAR-Masbate Provincial Office. reg5pic6

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Other members of the inspection team were OIC-CARPO Floro A. Espares, PPBDD, OIC-MARO Aldrin N. Mujar of DARMO-San Pascual and Engr. Jovito O. Rejuso, PPMO-ARISP III Rural Infrastructure Engineer (now OIC-MARO of DARMO-San Fernando/Batuan). 

San Pascual Mayor Zacharina Lazaro also joined the group to show her full support to the ARISP III of DAR.

The contingent inspected the progress of work on the 7,259.69 m Junction National Road (JNR), a farm-to-market road (FMR), from Sitio Luksuhon to Bayanihan. This road project amounting to 34,213,446.96 pesos started last December 2, 2013 and is targeted to be completed on July 19, 2014.

According to PARPO Sam, RD Bueno and the CPMO representatives were pleased with the pace, progress and quality of the road rehabilitation project. Since it is ahead of schedule, the repair and improvement of the FMR could be finished before its target date. 

The FMR, which will provide better access to the main road going to the town proper of San Pascual, shall directly benefit not only the 318 Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries (ARBs) who are farmer-members of Cueva ARC (data as of February 2014) but as well as the many residents of barangays Cueva and Pinamasingan.reg5pic3

This will greatly reduce transportation cost and effort of farmers in bringing their farm products to the market centers, thus, increasing their income and giving them more time for their farm activities.
