Sarangani rice farmers receive assistance from DA

ALABEL, Sarangani (June 11, 2020) – Some of the 265 rice farmers from Alabel town receive financial assistance from the Rice Farmer Financial Assistance (RFFA) Program of the Department of Agriculture on June 11 at the Capitol compound. The RFFA was formed to give additional aid to rice farmers affected by the low buying price of “palay” through giving P5,000 financial assistance. “As of now, we are distributing the financial aid to the identified rice farmers dito sa Alabel. There was a total of 214 rice farmers who received their financial assistance through payroll and 51 naman through cash cards and maki-claim po nila ito doon po sa Landbank,” said provincial agriculturist Jonathan Duhaylungsod. “Wala po tayong naging problema when it comes sa partnership natin between the regional office and LGUs kasi si Governor Solon kasama po ang ating mga municipal mayors are very supportive dito sa ating programa,” said Jocelyn Misterio, agriculture program coordinating officer for SarGen area. “Although may kaunting problems tayo na na-encounter sa mga pangalan ng ating mga beneficiaries especially sa spelling, thankfully dahan-dahan natin siyang naayos and we believe na we can still improve our distribution process sa mga susunod na araw doon po sa ating mga natitirang mga munisipyo,” Misterio added.
