BACOLOD CITY -- The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) has released P176 million to agrarian reform beneficiaries in Negros Occidental province last year.


Edna M. Villaruel, chief agrarian reform officer, said 4,219 farmers benefited from the Agrarian Production Credit Program. The farmers are members of 41 agrarian reform beneficiary organizations (ARBOs) in the cities of Kabankalan, Bago, La Carlota, Himamaylan and Bacolod and in the towns of Pontevedra, La Castellana, Cuayan, San Enrique and Pulupandan. “DAR is also set to release P19.5 million in additional grants to seven ARBOs with 867 members from the cities of Bago, Kabankalan and Himamaylan, and from the towns of Hinoba-an and Isabela this year,” Ms. Villaruel said in a statement.

The loan request of the three other ARBOs from the towns of Moises Padilla and Hinigaran and in Bago City in the amount of P3.6 million is also being processed by DAR.

Under the program, the Department of Agriculture provides basic support and services, such as marketing assistance and technology packages to qualified ARBOs while DAR is at the helm of identifying eligible ARBs or ARB household members. The agency is also set to distribute six tractors valued at P18.6 million to ARBOs. -- Adrian P. Nemes III
