SULU – A poultry farm that can accommodate thousands of chickens is soon to start construction in the town of Parang in the southern Philippine province of Sulu, Gov. Toto Tan said Wednesday.
Tan said Bounty Fresh Agro Ventures in partnership with the Go Negosyo Program and the provincial government have launched the “Kapatid for Agro Bounty Fresh Poultry Farm” in the village of Tukay.
He said the livelihood program will greatly help many beneficiaries since Bounty Agro Ventures will also provide training for those who would be selected to run the farm.
Tan, together with Ana Margarita Malvar, the project head for the Muslim autonomous region and adviser for Agri- Enterprises of the Go-Negosyo Program; and Dr. Kier Jason Fernandez, Bounty Fresh Contract Growing Supervisor, led the ground-breaking ceremony attended by the town’s mayor Madzhar Loong.
Fernandez said an initial investment of 5,000 chickens and poultry housing will be provided by their company to jump start the livelihood program.
Loong expressed his gratitude to Go Negosyo and Bounty Fresh Agro Ventures for the livelihood package. “Maasahan ninyo na sisikapin namin mapaunlad ang malaking oportunidad na pang-kabuhayan na ibinigay ninyo dito sa Barangay Tukay,” Loong said.
Malvar, for her part, reminded recipients to seize this opportunity and have their best interest in mind. “The determination of its success is now in your hands,” she said.
Tan praised Go Negosyo and Bounty Agro Ventures for their continued support to Sulu’s various pro-poor programs.
Malvar also handed out housing certificates to the beneficiaries of the first batch of the Go Negosyo Kapatid Village in Kalinggalan Caluang town where an initial 8 are ready for distribution.
Town Mayor Peping Halun thanked Malvar and Go Negosyo founder Jose Maria Concepcion III, who is also Presidential Adviser for Entrepreneurship. (Mindanao Examiner)
