THE Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) Negros Occidental-South turned over recently common service facilities (CSF) worth P3.5 million to eight agrarian reform beneficiaries organizations (Arbos).
The granting of CSFs is part of the Agrarian Reform Community Connectivity and Economic Support Services (Arccess) project.
These include four units of shredder, nine hand tractors, and five treshers.
