Mayor Oscar “Richard” S. Garin, Jr. personally turned over the cheque amounting to P300,000.00 to Pudpud Agri-Farm Special Livelihood Program Association through President Rachel Sibua.
The check forms part of the PAMANA grant to isolated, hard-to-reach and conflict-affected communities across the country. It was turned over to Mayor Garin by Provincial Coordinator Iloilo Province Anthony Laruan.
It was learned that the amount will be used for the purchase of farm inputs for use by the members of the association.
“Pera mo palaguin mo. Dapat I negosyo, indi ninyo pag I distribute sa kada miembro,” Mayor Garin said as he challenged them that the association should gain an even higher profit to sustain the grant.
