Guimaras fisherfolk get P18 million in projects
Under the Targeted Actions to Reduce Poverty and Generate Economic Transformation Program, the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) constructs CFLCs to reduce poverty incidence in coastal communities. BFAR, as an attached bureau of the Department of Agriculture (DA), will also provide postharvest facilities and equipment to reduce losses and to spur fishery development. Rep. Lucille Nava expressed her gratitude to DA and BFAR for the support considering that 51 out of 98 barangays in Guimaras are coastal areas.
