CamNorte receives P50-M worth of projects

CAMARINES NORTE--The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) has recently turned over Php50 million worth of projects to local government units (LGUs) of Mercedes and Sta. Elena, Camarines Norte.

DAR Region 5 Director Luis B. Bueno Jr. said the projects include concreting of 4.484 kilometers farm-to-market road (FMR) worth Php26 million, Potable Water Supply Level II worth Php4 million for ARC PAMAHIMA in Mercedes and Concreting of Junction National Road to Rizal-Poblacion-San Lorenzo FMR costing Php15 million and construction of Sta. Elena Farmers Multi-Purpose Cooperative (SEFMPC) Post Harvest Facilities (PHF) worth Php6 million in ARC Rizal & Poblacion in Sta. Elena.

Bueno said the projects were funded by the Agrarian Reform Infrastructure Support Projects Phase III (ARISP 3).

He added that FMR projects are vital in maximizing the economic potentials of agrarian reform communities (ARCs) because farmers’ produce would find its way easily to the market center.

The post-harvest facility, on the other hand helps in enhancing farm productivity, ensuring food security and easing poverty.

The PHF has warehouse capacity of 3,500 cavans, 49sqm coop office and 450sqm solar dryer. It will house the common service facilities granted to the SEFMPC through the Agrarian Reform Community Connectivity & Economic Support Services (ARCCESS) program of DAR.

Bueno added that the Potable Water Supply level II project seeks to serve 250 households, including 189 agrarian reform beneficiaries, and aims to reduce the high incidence of diarrhea and other water-borne diseases.

For ARC Rizal/Poblacion, 4.2 km road concreting will benefit 400 agrarian reform beneficiaries and 16,000 residents of the ARC and its adjoining barangays of San Lorenzo and Salvacion and can extend to the residents of the neighboring town of Capalonga. The usual travel time of 15 minutes for 1 kilometer is projected to decrease by at least a quarter of the time after the construction of this road. (PNA) FFC/PR/JSD
