DA to help farmers, fisherfolk tap low-cost loans
MetadataShow full item record
The Department of Agriculture (DA) is planning to move away from a subsidy system as more easy-access financing becomes available, with the department planning to help farmers and fisherfolk tap low-cost loan facilities. Agriculture Secretary Emmanuel F. Piñol said the organizational requirements for implementing the scheme include provincial loan facilitation teams to assist borrowers. “We don’t want to experience a situation were there are enough funds but it’s hard for the farmers and the fisherfolk to access them because they were not assisted,” he added.
