Apayao Governor Eleanor Bulut-Begtang on August 4 led the distribution of two hauling trucks to a farmers’ cooperative.
The Apayao politiko awarded a ten-tonner and a five-tonner worth P4.6 million.
The trucks are part of the P10.7-million Banana “Cardava” Production, Consolidation, and Marketing subproject under the I-REAP component of the Philippine Rural Development Project.
Begtang urged the farmers to maximize the use of the trucks to further benefit their communities.
“Finally, after the lockdowns in the Province brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, we already have these trucks to be utilized by our dear farmers,” she said.
“Continue to perform well as this is the basis for more assistance from the government,” Bentang added.
