MetadataShow full item record
A group of farmers in Culasi, Antique received the P2.5-million Seed Capital Fund (SCF) for seaweeds production in early May 2016. Given the market demand, seaweeds production is expected to generate income and economically capacitate farmer-beneficiaries. According to Ma. Aurea Pascua, project development officer of the Department of Social Welfare and Development’s (DSWD) Sustainable Livelihood Program (SLP), middlemen buy seaweeds from the Culasi farmers and transport the products via Caluya.
