To make sure that the farmers are provided with their much-needed support in the time of the pandemic, the government through the Department of Trade and Industry’s program called, Pangkabuhayan sa pagBangon at Ginhawa (PBG) provided livelihood kits to the twenty more farmers in Bukidnon.

This is the second batch of the beneficiaries who received not just livelihood kits but also the training programs to enhance their entrepreneurial skills.

Each farmer received a knapsack sprayer after attending an entrepreneurial mind-setting seminar conducted by Negosyo Center in Sitio Kibulag, Barangay Lantud in Talakag. The knapsack sprayer is identified as an immediate need since farming is the main source of livelihood for the residents of the remote village. The lack of fertilizer is the main issue of the farmers, limiting their farming activity and leading the farmers to rent knapsack sprayers from their neighbors for P100 per day.

But now with their own knapsack sprayers and additional knowledge on entrepreneurship through the seminar provided, the farmer-beneficiaries will be able to increase the production of their fresh agri-products to be sold in neighboring barangays including in Talakag Public Market.

Mike Dimdim Datu Pinto, one of the farmer-beneficiaries, expressed his gratitude for having been provided with the livelihood kit and training as he said, “I am thankful to DTI for giving the knapsack sprayer that I can use in farming.”

The first batch of livelihood kits was distributed to the farmers during the official launching of the Poverty Reduction, Livelihood, and Employment Cluster (PRLEC) project in Bukidnon on June 30, 2020. PRLEC is one of the clusters formed through Executive Order 70 that aims to develop sustainable communities through harmonized and culturally responsive government development programs.
