Samal Mayor Alex Acuzar is giving all the help to the cassava farmers of this town to improve their living condition.
Municipal Administrator Jay Lat said Samal LGU will provide loan without interest to local cassava farmers that they can use to finance their farming.
Lat also said that the LGU already linked with Charoen Pokphand Foods Philippines Corporation (CPF), a multinational company located in their town manufacturing feeds, to procure the harvests of local cassava farmers in a fixed price.
He added a memorandum of agreement (MOA) will be signed between Samal LGU and CPF for this purpose.
“Ang gusto ni Mayor Alex Acuzar matulungan talaga mga cassava farmers namin, pautangin sila nang walang tubo, may sigurado silang pagbebentahan ng ani nila na fixed ang price kaya hindi sila mangangamba na baka sa mga susunod na araw bagsak na presyo”, Lat added.
