DA releases P1.3-M loan for Sarangani rice farmers


The Department of Agriculture (DA) released Wednesday, June 17, the P1.365 million loan for rice farmers in Sarangani province.

The Agricultural Credit Policy Council and the Land Bank of the Philippines disbursed the fund for 91 rice farmer-borrowers coming from the different barangays of the municipality of Malungon.

Each farmer-beneficiary has received a cash card containing P15,000 being granted to them by the DA through its Expanded Survival and Recovery (SURE Aid) Loan Program.

DA 12’s Sarangani-GenSan Agricultural Program Coordinating Officer Jocelyn Mysterio represented Regional Executive Director Arlan Mangelen in the distribution of the cash cards at the town’s gymnasium.
