Agriculture Sector

In 2019, SAAD is implemented in Antique with a total project allotment of Php13,450,000. There are ten livelihood projects to be provided for 30 individuals and 15 groups. But, 17 groups benefited in 10 livelihood projects because, during the planning stage, the assumption production area per beneficiary is 1 hectare. It turned out that the beneficiaries only have ¼ hectare each, thus, the inputs versus beneficiary ratio decreased which resulted in an increase in the number of beneficiaries formed into 2 groups as well.

The municipalities of San Remigio and Laua-an were selected because during the planning stage, they belong to the top 4 municipalities who had the highest poverty incidence based on PSA 2015: 35.3% for San Remigio and 24.1% for Laua-an.

The tables below reflect the list of municipalities selected as the beneficiaries of SAAD Program for the year of 2019. This is based on the data from the Philippine Statistics Authority 2015. The projects are implemented by the Department of Agriculture.
