Tire path project benefits NVizcaya farmers
Bambang, Nueva Vizcaya (9 June) -- Farmers will now have the ease of transporting their products to the market with the completion of a tire path in barangay Mabuslo here.
The 235-meter tire path was constructed by the Department of Public Works and Highways(DWPH) with a fund of P500,000.00 under the BUTIL farm-to-market road program.
"With this project, farmers can now transport their products with ease and at meager expenses even during rainy days," said Banao Irrigators' Association(BIA) president Manolito Mauricio.
The project was started in April 3 and was completed in April 21 this year.
Before the construction of the tire path, 27 farmer families and other villagers use carabaos in transporting their products, thereby incurring huge transportation expenses. (PIA NVizcaya) [top]
