Chairman Avelino Acasio of Barangay Esperanza was thankful their road was improved from what used to be a trail where only single motorcycles could pass in going to adjacent Barangay San Vicente. Now, he disclosed that all types of vehicles can already penetrate the area making hauling of farm products for trading fast and easier.
