Distribution of financial assistance to Paglaum Farmers Association
LOOK: Around 70 typhoon-affected farmers in Brgy 103-A Paglaum received cash assistance from the City Government on Thursday, amounting to a total of Php280,000 pesos.
Each of the farmer-beneficiaries received Php 4,000 each from the 5 Million assistance fund of the National Government to farmers affected by Typhoon Ursula last December 2019.
The recipients who were members of the Paglaum Farmers Association (PFA) will use the cash assistance to restore their agricultural livelihoods. The farmers are engaged in rice, vegetable, and root crops farming.
On behalf of Mayor Alfred S. Romualdez, Councilor Leo Bahin led the distribution along with City Agriculturist Dr. Alfredo Camposano, Brgy. Chairman Edgardo Condesa and PFA President Loduvico Capate.
