Labor Employment Officer II and Focal Person of DOLE’s Integrated Livelihood Program Noemi Dela Peña handed over the cheque for its working carabao production project to BARC Chairman Enriqueto Juanillo and told beneficiaries that said amount can already purchase 25 carabaos for their farm.

She added that as members of the cooperative, they should give back 30% of their gain out of the aid given to them to serve as income of their coop to help improve their program and sustain members’ livelihood.

Juanillo on the other hand, responded with gratefulness and pledged in behalf of the coop members to use the DOLE’s aid for its rightful purpose.

Vice-Gov. Eugenio Jose “Bong” Lacson who witnessed said turn-over of aid to farmers also reminded them to make good with the government’s assistance to them thru improved farm production later.

Also present during said event was City Agriculturist Devitt Dollosa, PESO Manager Delia Camasura, Brgy. Bagonbon Punong Barangay Editha Juanillo, and BARC members.
