“Each direct beneficiary belongs to one household, so imagine how many could actually benefit from these projects by simply multiplying it with each member of the household,” Alburo added.

He cited the farmers from neighboring barangays that could also benefit from the projects.

“For instance, a solar dryer or a potable water system in a far-flung barangay can serve not only the locals but also residents from neighboring barangays,” Alburo cited.

“It could even be an income-generating service of the ARBO.” he added. (Jose Jemuel B. Dael)
