Regional Director Alejandro Otacan said the ARBOs to benefit from the CSFs are Kalangajan Farmers Consumer Coop (KFCC) in Tuburan, Agrarian Reform Community Beneficiaries multi-purpose cooperative (ARCBMPC) in Naga City, Esperanza Farmers Association (ESFA) in Aloguinsan, Cabcaban Farmers for Rural Development (CFARD) in Barili, and the  Panaghugpong sa Molupyo sa Colonia (PAMOCO) in Tuburan town.

“These farm equipments will help our farmers increase their corn and vegetable production. It also help them work faster and have extra time in doing other farm chores,” Otacan said.

On the other hand, Assistant Regional Director Antonio del Socorro said the orientation is very important to the farmers in maintaining the smooth operations of CSF.

ARCCESS strengthens the ARB organizations by building them as hubs of support services in the community which are expected to contribute to increasing ARB household incomes and improve resiliency of ARB households.
