DAR launches another farm business school in Eastern Visayas

piaBONTOC, SOUTHERN LEYTE, May 13 – The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) recently launched in Barangay Buenavista in this town the second farm business school in Eastern Visayas to prepare the agrarian reform beneficiary organizations (ARBOs) to be globally competitive.

DAR Regional Director Sheila Enciso said this project, in partnership with the Department of Agriculture (DA), the local government unit and the concerned ARBO, would help in boosting farmer’s income and could also contribute to national food security.

“This is an on-site training where the farmer-beneficiaries will learn about high value crops production and its marketing strategies because we are grooming them to become agricultural entrepreneurs, ” Enciso said.

40 members of the Buenavista-Pamahawan ARBs Multi-Purpose Cooperative have been identified to participate in this training that will run for 25 sessions wherein the participants and the facilitators agreed to meet every Thursday.

Program Beneficiaries Development Division (PBDD) Chief Melecia Ong said Buenavista-Pamahawan ARBs Multi-Purpose Cooperative is fortunate to be included in the 15 ARBOs identified nationwide to be trained on Farm business school this year.

Ong added that a funding of P150,000 will be provided to each of the 15 identified sites for the conduct of the 25 sessions.

During the launching, authorized representatives from the DAR, local government unit, barangay council and the concerned ARBO signed a memorandum of agreement in support of this project.
