Farmers’ New Year’s wish: Return of levy
Quezon coconut farmers on Sunday asked President Aquino to give them hope for the New Year by returning to them the multibillion-peso coco levy fund.
Jansept Geronimo, secretary general of the Coalition of Coconut Farmers of Quezon (Coco-Farm-Quezon), said that while the prospect of the return of the coco levy fund to the farmers is bleak, they still hoped the President would do the right thing. Delfin T. Mallari Jr., Inquirer Southern Luzon
