Agrarian reform beneficiaries in South Cotabato receive Php10.5 machineries

piaKORONADAL CITY, South Cotabato,  Sept. 3  (PIA)  --  Two  agrarian  reform  beneficiary  groups in South Cotabato   recently  received  machineries  with  a combined  cost of Php10.5  million  intended to  boost their  production and  profit.


Report  from  the Department of Agrarian Reform in South Cotabato  identified the beneficiaries as  the  Glamang Communal Irrigators’ Association (GCIA) in Polomolok town and  the Banga Agrarian Reform Community Cooperative (BARCCO)  in  Banga town.

Provincial Agrarian Reform Program Officer Felix Frias disclosed that  the GCIA   was  given  two 

90  horsepower Massey Ferguson tractor  and  one corn sheller with accessories and  tools.  These  have a total value of  Php 6.3 million.

Meanwhile  the BARCCO  received  a  120 horsepower Massey Ferguson tractor amounting to  Php4.15 million.

Representatives of the recipient  Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries Organizations (ARBOs)  gratefully  welcomed the  free farm machineries that the  government  granted them.

“We’ve  waited for the promised  tractor  for  almost  three years, which  came to  a point that we  thought  there is  no hope this  would be  realized,”  said Romeo Balleras,  BARCCO chairman.

“Now that  the we have finally  received this tractor  from DAR,  we  are delighted because we have in our hands  machineries that would definitely promote  improvements in the  lives  of our members  and other ARBOs in  our area,” he added.

Meanwhile, Godofredo Diot, chairperson of Barangay  Glamang  and  chairman of the  GCIA,  pledged  they will  be  watchful of the upkeep of the  machines  they  received.

“We  assure the Department of  Agrarian Reform  that we  will always  be  true to  Trust Agreement on which  we have promised to properly manage the  machines  so that these  would bring forth  more blessings  for our cooperative.  More power to DAR and its  programs.

The machineries    were  turned over to the  associations  as  common  service  facilities under the DAR- Agrarian Reform Community Connectivity and Economic Support Services (ARCCESS).

ARCCESS aims to  promote  livelihood of the ARBOs  through  the  dispersal of  services that  could  help develop the livelihood of  the agrarian reform beneficiaries and their  family. (DEDoguiles-PIA 12  with report  from KDSespeñe-DAR SoCot)
