Agrarian reform beneficiares receive service facilities

Mindanaotimes logoTHE REGIONAL office of the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) turned over yesterday P2.767 million worth of common service facilities to some agrarian reform beneficiary organizations (ARBOs) in the region.


DAR XI Regional Director John M. Maruhom said during the turn-over ceremony at the department’s regional office that 24 common service facilities were turned over to 16 ARBOs based in Davao del Norte, Davao del Sur and Davao Oriental.

The facilities included rice threshers, floating tillers and corn sheller. “Hopefully, these will help them increase their production and income,” Maruhom said.

In the list from DAR XI, among the beneficiaries included Cooperative of Hagonoy Farmers, Lapulabao-Poblacion Sacub Irrigators Association, Kooperatiba ng New Murcia, Bala-Kanapulo Communal Irrigators Association, Western La Suerte Farmers Irrigators Association and Dalawinon Multi-Purpose Cooperative in Davao del Sur.

The beneficiaries in Davao del Norte weree Pagsabangan Farmers and Irrigators Multi-Purpose Cooperative and New Corella Integrated Development Cooperative.

In Davao Oriental, those that benefited the facilities were San Vicente Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries Cooperative, Banaybanay Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries Cooperative, Uswag Carmen Irrigators Association, San Rafael Farmers Association, Cateel Settlement Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries Multi-Purpose Cooperative and Panikian Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries Farmers Cooperative.

The common services facilities, Maruhom said, are covered with insurance. These are part of DAR’s program Agrarian Reform Community Connectivity and Economic Support Services that aimed to extend support to agrarian reform beneficiaries.

Eduardo C. Butulan, chair of Uswag Carmen Irrigators Association, said they are grateful that the regional office of DAR provided them with common service facilities such as rice thresher and floating tiller.

With the facilities, Butulan said they will be able to cut their expenses as they would not need to rent an equipment at P300 per hour. “These would truly help improve our production and augment our income,” he said.
