MANILA, June 19 — The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) has turned over P.5.7 million worth of infrastructure projects to Brgy. General Malvar Pontevedra in Negros Occidental for agrarian reform beneficiaries (ARBs) in the said community.


An estimated P2.2 million worth of concrete farm-to-market road and P1 million worth of agricultural warehouse are the facilities provided by DAR, according to Provincial Agrarian Reform Program Officer Lucresia Taberna.

“The Department also constructed 450-square meter multi-purpose pavement networks in Puroks 1 and 5, that will be used to dry rice grains, at a total cost of P1 million to further boost their yields,” Taberna added.

Aside from agricultural facilities, the DAR also spent P1.5 million on the construction of a two-classroom building with comfort rooms which is poised to benefit 189 students who are mostly children of agrarian reform beneficiaries (ARBs).

Agrarian Reform Communities Project II (ARCP II) has actualized the infrastructure projects which are expected to benefit a total of 249 ARBs.

Forty percent of the total expenditures for the said projects were provided by DAR through the Development Bank of the Philippines while 35 percent came from the local government of Pontevedra. The rest which translates to 15 percent were provided by the national government. (PNA)
