LA UNION – Farmers in Piddig, Ilocos Norte will soon benefit from a smooth transport of their agricultural products following the turnover of a P1 million check to the Local Government Unit (LGU) of Piddig, Wednesday.

Ms. Jenifer Ligot, representing Piddig Mayor Eduardo Guillen, personally received the check from DA-RFO 1 Regional Executive Director Nestor Domenden which will fund the procurement of a 14-footer closed aluminum van that will be used for the safe delivery of farmers’ goods.

More than 1,000 members of the Piddig Basi Multi-Purpose Cooperative and 46 farmers’ associations will be the beneficiaries of the project.
Said fund is part of the DA Kadiwa ni Ani at Kita Financial Grant Assistance Program which aims to help local farmers become more reliable suppliers of food commodities to consumers.###
