MAMBAJAO, Camiguin, December 29 (PIA) — Four new farmers, instantly become landowners this year, after the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) distributed the Certificates of Land Ownership Award to the Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries (ARBs) in Camiguin province.
A total of 5.6 hectares were distributed to three recipients in Mahinog town and 18.3 hectares to one ARB in the municipality of Guinsiliban.
According to DAR, these are part of the 23 hectares undistributed Land Acquisition and Distribution (LAD) balances from prior year’s target of DAR, and other years target that necessitates intervention of other implementing agencies like Land Bank of the Philippines (LBP) and Land Registration Authority (LRA).
Apart from land distribution, DAR also provides necessary support services to increase farm productivity and net income of the ARBs in the form of farm-to-market roads, bridges, post harvest facilities, trainings, and livelihood seminars. (JCV/PIA)
