Hingyon LGU funds barangay livelihood project

by Jina Shirley G. Dacmay

HINGYON, Ifugao (23 April) -- In line with the national government's job creation program, the local government unit here has disbursed P340,000 barangay livelihood fund to eleven Registered Rural Based Organizations (RBOs) as part of their plan to empower their local constituents find meaningful employment in their own barangays.

Martha Urbano, Municipal Agricultural Officer (MAO) said this project was started in 2004 and has so far benefited RBOs in barangays from across their municipality.

Members opted for swine production because pigs are needed by the natives as part of their cultural performances and activities like agricultural rituals and practices, wake of the dead, weddings, fiestas and other activities, she stressed.

The disbursement of the project comes in the form of piglets and the procurement of feeds by the LGU which has been distributed to the different RBOs. A counterpart by the project proponents is required after the total funds required by the proponent's project is exhausted, Urbano said.

To sustain the project and to serve more beneficiaries, a roll-back of 50% on the investments is asked for by the LGU. Almost half of the number of project proponents have payed their 50% roll-back." We are happy with the commitment of the proponents and the success of the project " she said.

Other regular livelihood programs of the LGU include "kabir" and duck production, fish hatchery/pond project, agro- forest nursery and organic garden project which is also benefiting farmers in this highland municipality. (PIA Ifugao) [top]
