DAR turnovers Php71.8-M infra projects in Bohol

balita-phMANILA, March 4 — The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) recently turned-over Php71.8-million worth of various infrastructure projects in the municipality of Alicia in Bohol to boost the economic conditions of agrarian reform beneficiaries (ARBs) in the said province.



Provincial Agrarian Reform Program Officer Grace Fua said the Php38.13-million worth of farm-to-market road was improved. The 5.97-kilometer road connects the following barangays Progreso, Cambaol, Cayacay, and Napo to the town proper.

“This road was crumbling and hardly passable that’s why we construct a concrete pavement on critical sections, a 10.2 linear meters reinforced concrete box culvert and a 21 linear meters reinforced concrete deck girder bridge for the safety of the travelers, particularly the farmers, who transport their agricultural goods,” Fua said.

The DAR also turned-over the Php32.21-million Cayacay Communal Irrigation Project covering 80 hectares of agricultural lands to help the farmers increase their produce.

Moreover, the Del Untaga Procayacap agrarian reform community (ARC) also received post-harvest facility and a 72-sq.m. Agrarian Information and Marketing Center (AIM-C), located at the Poblacion, costing Php1.5-million.

Fua said the infrastructure projects, implemented under the Agrarian Reform Infrastructure Support Project Phase III (ARISP3), aimed to boost the ARB’s production and marketing of farm products, made up mostly of rice, coconut, vegetables, oil palm, among others.

Undersecretary Felix Perry Villanueva reminded the beneficiaries to take good care of the project and do their share by working hard to further increase their production and eventually their income.

On the other hand, Alicia Mayor Marnilou Ayuban thanked DAR for its contribution in bringing forth some major development in the province of Bohol in terms of poverty alleviation through these projects.

ARC Del Untaga Procayacap is composed of Barangays Del Monte, Untaga, Progreso, Cambaol, Cayacay and Poblacion. It has a total land area of 5,510.17 hectares, approximately 48% of the total land area of the municipality. The ARC is home to about 12,000 residents with 2,150 households. (PNA)
