Farmers’ Association officers inducted in Borongan City

Created on Monday, 01 July 2019 Published Date

Officers of the newly-minted Bayobay Livestock and Vegetable Production Association took their oath of office before a motley crowd of village officials and constituents, staff of the SAAD Program Regional/Provincial Program Management Support Offices, and residents of adjacent barangays.  Brgy. Chair Maria Afable administered the induction of officers held at the barangay hall grounds, Brgy. Bayobay, Borongan City, on May 8, 2019.

Association President Jonathan Gesite, a progressive, forward-looking leader, outlined his plans and programs for the group during his Welcome Remarks.  He emphasized the importance of industry and cooperation in the fulfillment of the association’s objectives.  He also envisioned the farmer-beneficiaries as the prime supplier of hog meat and duck eggs for balut and processed salted eggs in Borongan City in the near future.  Lastly, he encouraged his fellow farmer-recipients to cultivate common and high–value crop vegetables to supplement the nutritional requirements of their children, thereby improving the health status of the community.

For his part, SAAD Program Provincial Coordinator Antonio B. Luceres, Jr., in his Inspirational Message, thanked the farmers for their wholehearted cooperation in implementing the projects.  He likewise exhorted them to continue doing their best in their respective endeavors because, according to him, the benefits will redound back to them in their quest for an improved quality of life.  He promised the PPMSO’s unequivocal support through regular monitoring, coaching and mentoring, and assistance in addressing issues/ concerns encountered by them.

The program was capped by the ubiquitous kuratsa dance common to gatherings in the Samar provinces.  The ass’n. was able to generate income from the dance, which it would use to jumpstart future planned activities of the association.  (MICHAEL F.
