DAR’s Project ConVerge funds Savings and Credit Management System for Sibugay ARBOs

Provincial head of DAR Zamboanga Sibugay Mohammad Dassan Adju handed to SARBEMCO representative the Certificate of Award for the computer, software, router and printer THE DEPARTMENT of Agrarian Reform has always been one of the many anchors of our Filipino farmers towards productivity and self-sufficiency. The Product Capitalization Fund Project of Project ConVerge is only one of the many DAR-related projects that seek to provide support

to Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries. To this day where the pandemic continues to hamper the livelihood of many, government support projects are of big assistance especially to farmers. This is significantly true for the four Agrarian Reform Beneficiary Organizations of the province, Sulo Agrarian

Reform Beneficiaries Multipurpose Cooperative (SARBEMCO), Lumbia Rubber Producers Association (LURPA), Silingan Rubber Farmers Association (SIRFA) and Makilas Multi-Purpose Cooperative (MMPC). The Savings and Credit Management System installed for these four

Agrarian Reform Beneficiary Organizations seek to provide an accounting system that would generate financial statements which includes Balance Sheets and Income Statements. All the more, a Loan Management system that would aide these Agrarian Reform Beneficiary Organizations to manage loan grants to their members and non-members. With this system, they are able to fully monitor their financial status. As reported, this CPMO funded project is on its 4th and 5th tranche. The P600,000-funded project with Zenitram as its partner service provider, has equipped the four identified ARBOs with Savings and Credit software, a computer set and internet routers each. The Savings and Credit management is integrated into the accounting system to ensure better quality of service. PARPO II Mohammad Dassan J. Adju with GID Coordinator PARPO I Lorna Salera and CARPO for PBD Anthony Teves are confident that thru this project, the ARBOs will be fully equipped in handling their financial system.

Farmer Field School Training for LIFABEMCO Continued from page 1 Intensive Farmers Field School training on Major Crop-Based Block-Farm Rice Productivity Enhancement. The capability building training, held last April 27-29 at the Old Labangan in Labangan town, was under the DAR Zamboanga del Sur Climate Resilience Farm Productivity Support Project ( CRFPSP ) Resource Speaker Noli Camocamo informed the participants that the Farmer Field School (FFS) will last for the entire cropping season with informal activities, which are hands-on and oriented towards im-

proved decision making, field study, proper usage of fertilizer, Integrated Pest Management, and proper tillage for healthy crops. The training was the result of a recently held Reconnaissance Survey of the Demo Farm for the 52 farmers who will be trained on the Farmers’ Field School for rice production. Engr. Josephine Sisican head of the Support Services Division said that these ARBs will be assisted with farm inputs and season long training. LIFABEMCO, the project proponent, will be provided with hard component /hauling truck for the marketing of the rice produced under this project.

ConVERGE ARBO promotes organic fertilizer product for rice growers

The Bokashi organic fertilizer of RIMMPCO, a Project ConVERGE-assisted ARBO.

A PROJECT ConVERGE-assisted ARBO, the Rizal Molave Multi-Purpose Cooperative (RIMMPCO) in Zamboanga del Sur, recently promoted their organic product, the Bokashi organic fertilizer, which is seen to benefit the restoration of soil fertility and heightened crop growth. The Bokashi organic fertilizer is a natural soil amendment that can be prepared using farm-based, locally derived materials. It focuses on the preparation of organic soil and plant amendments using microbiological processes as inspired by the Nature Farming approach, first advocated by the Japanese philosopher Mokichi Okada in 1935. Its main components are energy-rich organic matter, dried manure, molasses, carbonized rice hull, corn, bran, coco pit, and locally derived

Training on Business Management for DOFARCO A TWO-DAY training on Business Management and Financial Literacy under Credit Assistance Program for Program Beneficiaries Development (DAR-CAP-PBD) was conducted for the Dumingag Organic Farmers Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries Cooperative (DOFARCO ) on April 29-30, 2021 at DA Compound, in Dumingag town in Zamboanga del Sur. Resource Speaker Dr. Fernand Buensalida discussed the importance of financial literacy in gaining basic understanding on banking, savings, and the importance of good credit. The training focused on the understanding of financial terminology, statements, and concepts, and knowing how to use these information to make a financial impact. The DOFARCO members were also taught how to read the language and documents used by their coopera-

DOFARCO members attend a training on Business Management and Financial Literacy training program. tive to have a deeper understanding in tracking their finances. The activity is an offshoot of the province-wide “Training Needs Assessment” of all ARBOs with ITEMA Level 3 and below conducted by Provincial Beneficiacies Development Division to help the ARBOs take off

and identify their needed support and capability building trainings. DOFARCO sells organic products like black rice, brown rice, red rice and herbal products. They also have other services like production loans and farm machineries rental for their members in Dumingag.

soil component which Rizal, Molave is rich in. The fertilizer has multiple benefits: It boosts plant health, improves soil structure, and it promotes chemical activity in the soil that converts nutrients to plant-friendly forms and keeps them from leaching out of the soil, and more. Local farmers, specifically in towns of Dumingag and Molave where organic agriculture has been practiced, have been using Bokashi even before as an effective soil ameliorant and fertilizer in the preparation of their rice production. The product had already been launched way back, and is now having its market expanded to further encourage the use of organic fertilizers that have helped their produce fluorish. Farmers can acquire organic fertilizers from nearby agricultural supplies as well as in RIMMPCO which produces their own good quality bokashi that is available to market and ready to use. RIMMPCO was able to produce the new batches of fertilizers last May 25 when they acquired raw materials for it, and started their delivery on May 28. ConVERGE Zamboanga del Sur has assisted in the promotion of said product in social media, and both ConVERGE and RIMMPCO were congratulated for the marketing initiative. “With this, the ARBO looks forward to an increase in income to both the ARBO and the beneficiaries,” said Josephine Sisican, Program Coordinator of ConVERGE Zamboanga del Sur. The products can be purchased at P300 per bag, along with their regular rice products in the RIMMPCO Office in Rizal, Molave, Zamboanga del Sur. Interested buyers can reach out through RIMMPCO Manager Nenita Baluarte at 0920-3147088 or through their Facebook Page: https://www.face-
