NAGA CITY – The thriving anti-poverty program of the office of the Vice President has already helped thousands of poor Filipino families, but Vice President Leni Robredo is inviting more local farmers to join the program.

At the launch of Angat Buhay’s “OMAsenso sa KaBUHAYan” on Friday here, Robredo encouraged more indigent local farmers to sign up for the program.


“In this program, we organize ordinary farmers and link them to a particular market. Individual farmers are unlikely to find a stable market, that is why we cluster them,” Robredo said.

“There is no need to worry for farmers because we will provide them inputs like financial assistance from cooperatives and we will also provide them technical expertise from the Department of Agriculture and Department of Trade and Industry,” she added.


“This program aims inclusive growth because instead of hotels or restaurants importing raw materials, there will be local farmer organizations that can provide them the ingredients they need,” she added.
