Pasil, Kalinga – A returning resident and a farmer organization in Pasil, Kalinga received on Friday, September 23, livelihood grant from the Regional Field office of the Department of Agriculture.


Municipal Agriculturist Jenelyn Massagan, along with other local officers, accompanied Lorenzo Biano and representatives of Umawilan Malucsad Organization in receiving P238,916 aid during the ceremonial turn over conducted at Kalinga Provincial Veterinary Office compound.

He received P82,083.00 worth of 2 gilt crossbreeds; 8 bags of hog feeds; a set of farm tools containing garden hose, grab hoe, and field boots; various vegetable seeds; and 2 bags of vegetable fertilizers.

The recipients are thankful for the government aid which they said would significantly help in augmenting their income and start-up.

The government’s BP2 program provides inclusive growth, adequate services, and employment opportunities to beneficiaries once they have been sent back to their respective home provinces from congested urban areas.
