DAR rolls out business school for agrarian reform beneficiaries

piaKORONADAL CITY, South Cotabato, Oct 9  (PIA)  -- In  a bid to enhance the entrepreneurial capabalities of agrarian reform  beneficiaries, the Department of Agrarian Reform recently rolled  out Farm  Business School in South Cotabato, particularly in  Tampakan town.


“This is the first Farmer Business School in Region 12 spearheaded by DAR,”  Leidenep M. Yecla,  FBS  facilitator,  noted. 

The  program is  carried out in cooperation with  other national line  agencies  including  the Department of Trade and Industry and the Department of Agriculture, Yecla  added.

At its initial offering,   some  26  farmer-students from Barangays  Lampitak Liberty, Maltana, Poblacion, San Isidro,  and Sta. Cruz are  enrolled in the program.  These  farmer-students are affiliated ith the POBUSILLA Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries Multi-Purpose Cooperative.

Provincial Agrarian Reform Program Officer Felix Frias said that the project utilizes a new learning approach designed to help farmers learn and improve their knowledge and skills in farm business management and entrepreneurship to improve their profitability and sustainability.

“The FBS program takes the school to the farmers to learn about business in their local environment. The training materials are designed around the concept of the farm business cycle,” Frias  elaborated.

At the launching, Regente Dioneda, chief agrarian reform program Officer  at the Program Beneficiaries Development Division of DAR Central Office, challenged the trainees to do well in the program for them to succeed in their livelihood.

“Your  success is entirely in  your  hands,”  she reminded the  beneficiaries.

Meanwhile, CARPO Ludenia Juanday of DAR Regional Office 12, explained that the FBS  is anchored on three  main  points, namely maximization of  land use, diligence and perseverance and  no  wastage of crops.

The  Farm  Business School is a  four-month  program.  (DEDoguiles-PIA 12  with  report from KSespeñe-DAR SoCot)
