Farm lands distributed to farmers in Cavite
The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) recently distributed certificates of land ownership award (CLOAs) to 163 farmers in Cavite.
The agricultural lands cover 112.32 hectares of land and were received by agrarian reform beneficiaries (ARBs) from the municipalities of Naic, Tanza, Trece Martirez City, Dasmarinas, Magallanes and Indang Cavite.
DAR Secretary John Castriciones said the department is now working hard to increase its issuance of CLOAs.
“Now that you have your land titles, I encourage you to join agrarian reform beneficiaries’ organizations (ARBOs) because it is through these organizations that the DAR courses through its various support services,” Castriciones tol the farmers.
Catriones also told them that if they have concern on their start-up capital to make their lands productive, they can avail of the Land Bank of the Philippine’s Accessible and Sustainable Lending Program, in which credit are very accessible to most farmers at a low interest rate of 6 percent per annum.
