P19.9-M Marketing Center For Sultan Kudarat Farmers

news regional pix 1 august 10 2015The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) is set to turn-over a P19.9-million worth of information and marketing facility to the agrarian reform beneficiaries (ARBs) of Sultan Kudarat in Barrio 2, Takurong City to help them boost their agricultural products.

Provincial Agrarian Reform Program Officer II (PARO II) Rodolfo Alburo said the Agrarian Information and Marketing Center (AIM-C) is equipped with office space, conference room, store room, display room for products of member-organizations, warehouse for storage of consolidated farm produce, motor pool for farm machineries, and information database for all products in the province.

PARPO Alburo said the facility would be operated and managed by Sultan Kudarat ARB Network (SKARBNET), a provincial federation of ARB organizations.

“With the features of AIM-C, SKARBNet is expected to operate and help its members better particularly on the information and marketing needs, as well as to improve the quality of services extended to its member organizations,” Alburo said.

AIM-C is a project under the Agrarian Reform Infrastructure Support Project III (ARISP III) funded by Japan Banking International Cooperation (JBIC) and implemented by the DAR, in coordination with local government units.

“The construction of the building is already completed. However, some works, such as the construction of the perimeter fence and site improvements have yet to be performed by the Provincial Government of Sultan Kudarat as their counterpart to the said project,” said Alburo.

Alburo added that as soon as the fencing and site improvements are completed, the turnover will be scheduled.news regional pix 2 august 10 2015
