0 7

Senator Imee Marcos the coronavirus disease (COVID19) pandemic and the recent strong typhoons in the country has left farmers wallowing in debt.

The Ilocos Norte politiko made the remark in her Bulgar column.

She said many farmers have been thinking of selling their lands just so they will have something to eat.

“Nabaon lalo sa utang ang ating mga magsasaka. Loan dito, loan doon, nakakaawa. Tila ba hindi na sila makakaahon sa paulit-ulit na sistemang ito,” Marcos said.

“Kaya’t no wonder kung marami sa kanila, eh, kapit na sa patalim. Nagbabalak nang ibenta ang kanilang mga lupain. ‘Wag naman sana!” she added.
