DAR Provincial Agrarian Reform Program Officer Joebar C. Pondoc said the training sessions, which started recently, are teaching farmers how to become entrepreneurs and how to treat their farms as enterprises to improve farm production.

“The FBS is a participatory action learning approach that endeavors to support the cooperative’s participation in agricultural market chains, and allows them to engage into business with less worries and difficulties, and share the knowledge learned with the other members of their respective ARB cooperatives,” said Pondoc.

Program Beneficiaries Development Division Chief Evangeline dela Cerna said the FBS is a three-month program consisted of 25 learning sessions. She said three sites in Davao Oriental located in Mati City, Lupon and Governor Generoso, are holding classes with 35 ARBs from each area.

“We want to enable the farmers to develop their 500-square meter lot and make it profitable by helping them become responsive to market demands,” said dela Cerna. (Atty. Joebar C. Pondoc)
