Sultan Kudarat farmers get dump trucks for efficient service delivery

piaISULAN,  Sultan Kudarat,  March 1 (PIA) — More integrated service can now be delivered to the farmers as three dump trucks were formally turned over to the recipient agrarian reform beneficiary organizations (ARBOs), officials  said. 

Rodolfo Alburo, provincial agrarian reform program officer II (PARPO II) said that each truck is priced at PhP5,710,640  or a combined cost of PhP17,131,920 procured under the Agrarian Reform Community Connectivity and Economic Support Services (ARCCESS) program of the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR).

“This can help address the hauling needs of farmers and serve as an added service of the ARB organizations,” Alburo said. 

Columbio Peoples Multi-purpose Cooperative (COPEMCO) received one dump truck while Sultan Kudarat Agrarian Reform Beneficiary Network (SKARBNet) received two units during the formal turn over at the DAR provincial office.

COPEMPCO Chairman Hector Nidoy said that they have been waiting for this project for some time as they need it as part of their cooperative services to their members.   

“This dump truck will compliment with the other projects that we received. DAR has already given us a tractor and now this hauling truck,” Nidoy said. 

This dump truck,  he added, will address the need for a cheaper cost of hauling farm produce in the area. 

“There is no end to our expression of gratitude to DAR and to the people who make this a reality,” Nidoy said.

SKARBNet Chairman Jolly Marquez also expressed his gratitude to DAR, saying the trucks will be of great help to them and to their six member - ARB organizations.

“We will use the trucks to ferry and deliver rice, corn, oil palm and sugar cane products that we will buy from the member-organizations of SKARBNet,” Marquez said.    

These trucks  will directly benefit more 300 member-farmers in the municipalities of Isulan, Tacurong, President Quirino, and Bagumbayan. 

The ARCCESS project aims to strengthen the ARB organizations by building them as hubs of support services in the community which are expected to contribute to increasing ARB household incomes and improve resiliency of ARB households. (JJDael-DAR-SK/DEDoguiles-PIA12)
