43 farmers from Tarlac to hone entrepreneurial skills
Some 43 farmers from two cooperatives in Tarlac will undergo training to boost their entrepreneurial skills in effectively managing their farm produce and optimize their profitability, the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) said Friday.
The department said that members of the Bacabac Farmers Producers’ Cooperative (BFPC) and Bacabac Gintong Ani Farmers’ Association, Inc. (BGAFAI) will participate in the Farm Business School (FBS) program in Bacabac village in Camiling.
Provincial Agrarian Reform Program Officer Ileona B. Pangilinan said the farmer-participants will undergo 25 sessions of farm business school for four months where they will learn the business side of agriculture using their own local environment as the FBS program takes the school to the farmers.
“The learning process will be interactive as the farmers will learn from each other. The facilitators will be there to teach and develop their capacity in running a profitable farm business by honing the farmers into becoming better farm managers and entrepreneurs that can respond to business and market requirements,” Pangilinan said.
The project came about after the DAR, with the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), Department of Agriculture (DA), DA-Agricultural Training Institute (DA-ATI), and the local government units (LGUs) signed a memorandum of agreement to help farmer-beneficiaries in Barangay Bacabac.
