DOLE supports livelihood projects of 140 farmers in Anini-y, Antique

 

Anini-y, Antique. One hundred forty (140) farmers from the municipality of Anini-y, Antique are recipients of various livelihood projects under DOLE Integrated Livelihood and Emergency Program (DILEEP) amounting to One Million Four Hundred Ninety-Three Pesos (P1,493,000.00).

 

The financial assistance which was received by Mayor Maxfil B. Pollicar of the Municipality of Anini-y will fund the cattle and poultry raising projects of farmers, farm laborers, senior citizens and self-employed workers with insufficient income.

 

These beneficiaries are active members of the Associations of Anini-y Cattle and Poultry Raisers. Of these beneficiaries, 51 will engage in cattle raising while 89 in poultry raising.

 

As a group undertaking, the cattle raising project will be managed by the Anini-y Cattle Raisers’ Association while the poultry raising project will be spearheaded by the Anini-y Poultry Raisers’ Association. They intend to generate self-employment opportunities for beneficiaries and increase their income by at least 30%. A portion of which will also be shared to benefit other members and for the capital build-up of their respective organizations.

 

The large number of consuming public, hotels and emerging fast-food restaurant chains in San Jose de Buenavista and neighboring towns plus the livestock markets in Sibalom, Antique and San Joaquin, Iloilo are the beneficiaries’ target market. They also see hotels and restaurants in Iloilo City as a good potential market.

 

Director Cyril L. Ticao, Regional Director of DOLE 6 said that aside from generating income for the farmer-beneficiaries, the project will also enhance their skills and productivity, particularly in raising crossbred cattle and chicken, and motivate them to participate actively in other government programs.

 

Ticao is also positive that the strong support of the local government of Anini-y and the active participation of poultry and cattle raisers in the province will ensure the sustainability of the livelihood projects funded by DOLE, and gradually improve the quality of life of the farmer-beneficiaries.
