DAR EV, Professional Service Providers sign multi-million project contract

piaTACLOBAN CITY, Leyte, July 10 (PIA) –In order to increase productivity of the farming sector in Eastern Visayas,  a contract signing for a P19.6 million worth of project was entered into by and between the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) Regional Office and the Professional Service Providers for Business Development Services and Progress and Process Monitoring (PPM).

The project, called as Agrarian Reform Community Connectivity & Economic Support Services (ARCCESS) is a support service delivering mechanism to help reduce poverty in rural communities.

DAR Regional Director Sheila Enciso explained the rationale why the government invested such huge amount for the benefit of agrarian reform communities.

“Para po yung lupa na ibinigay sa inyo huwag niyo po’ng pabayaan, huwag niyong isanla, huwag niyong ibenta. Ang DAR ginagawa ang lahat para mag-improve ang inyong pamumuhay kaya tangkilikin po natin,” Enciso said.

The project will benefit around 20, 000 Agrarian Reform Communities in the provinces of Leyte and Biliran.

Present during the signing of the contract were officials of the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) Regional Office led by Region 8 Director Sheila Enciso, Assistant Regional Director Ismael P. Aya-ay, Provincial Agrarian Reform Officers in the region, Agrarian Reform Beneficiary Organizations and the Professional Service Providers for Business Development Services (BDS-Batch 1 & 2) represented by Dr. Delma P. Manila of Metro Dumaguete College Inc. and Imelda C. Pangga, Chief Executive Officer of Infoshare Management Systems for Progress and Process Monitoring (PPM) Batch 2.

With the implementation of the Agrarian Reform Community Connectivity & Economic Support Services (ARCCESS) Projects, it is expected that by 2016 the farmers/entrepreneurs in the region will no longer be inferior with the entrepreneurs in the world market. (AJC/CBA/PIA-8)
