One of the beneficiaries from Pikit said that, “Shukran abenal sa tabang na DA-SAAD a nakatingguma syasa lugar name, masla abenal e makadtabang nu niyaba a mga tabang sa kaba-ngangawid nami.”

(Thank you DA-SAAD for extending your assistance in our community, this livelihood assistance will surely help us in doing our farming activities.)

Also, Nanay Rita from Alamada expressed her gratitude to the project.

“Nagapasalamat gid kami sa SAAD sang ila nga bulig sa amun, sang paghatag nil aka amu ni nga mga bulig sa amun nga mga farmers. Bangud sini nga mga hinabang, maka-produce man ining mga kambing sang gatas nga pwede namun mabaligya sa palengke, manganak man ini sila nga pwede pud namun mabaligya, kag sang magtanum kami sa bukid ining mga kambing ang mgkaon sang mga hilamon. Dako gid man ini nga bulig sa amun. Salamat gid SAAD.”

(We are really grateful to the DA-SAAD, for giving these interventions. The goats can produce more goats, as well as milk, which we could sell into markets. Also, goats are the ones who eat the grasses on our farm, this way, goats are very useful for us farmers.)

The activity was facilitated by SAAD 12 Deputy Focal Person Elma Delante and provincial staff in coordination with the five local government units (LGUs). ###
