DAR provides support services that will help the ARBs become viable entrepreneurs while the BDS is the capability building and technical assistance component that will help ARBs enterprises, farm management and business operations.

ARCCESS delivery is channeled through organizationally mature ARB organizations that will serve as hub or center of support services not only to the ARBO but other farmer’s organizations in the community.

Under ARCCESS program are Business Development Services (BDS), Agri-Extension Services (AES), Progress and Process Monitoring (PPM) that are components of professional services to improve farm-based income of ARBs and to reduce rural poverty. (rmn/hfg/Gay Visitacion of DAR-7/PIA Central Visayas)
