Palimbang farmers learn new skills on fish processing

piaPALIMBANG, Sultan  Kudarat, Aug18 (PIA) -  About 51 farmer-beneficiaries and fisherfolks learned new skills in producing bagoong and smoked fish in Barangay Milbuk, Palimbang, Sultan Kudarat late last month.

In the two-day technology transfer on fish processing, organized by the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) and Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) and the local government of Palimbang, the farmers were trained to improve their skills to a certain degree so that they can produce a quality bagoong and smoked fish products, an official said.

Felisa Sinobago, Officer-in-Charge of DTI Sultan Kudarat said that the government wanted to help the farmers and turn them into entrepreneurs for them to have control of their lives and create a sustainable source of income, as they utilize available resources in their area.

“This is still in relation to the efforts of the government to improve the lives of the people by becoming entrepreneurs,” Sinobago added. 

Another official, Luis Juliano, the Municipal Agrarian Reform Program Officer (MARPO) of Palimbang encouraged the participants to come up with a product with quality packaging and ready for display in  the upcoming festival in Palimbang. The town is celebrating “Kalilang Festival” in the month of May.

Juliano said that DAR will continue to support the group from the production and processing stage an even until the marketing of their produced products.

DAR’s contribution was giving them initial capital to jumpstart their business operation.

DTI, later in the year, will also provide shared service facilities (SSF) to further improve the processing  and production of fish products. 

Alvaro Casuga, one of the participants said that it was the first time DTI, DAR, BFAR and LGU collaborated and conducted an activity in their locality.

“I am happy that government agencies such as DTI, DAR and BFAR joined together and gave us this training,” Casuga added.

The training was listed as one of the activities under the Bottom-Up Budgeting (Grassroots Participatory Budgeting) lodged in the office of DTI in Sultan Kudarat province. (AC Agad/Pia 12 with reports from JJBDael-DAR SK)
