The province of Sarangani is located in SOCSKSARGEN Region which comprises the provinces of South Cotabato, Cotabato Province, Sultan Kudarat, Sarangani and General Santos. Sarangani have seven (7) municipalities (Alabel, Malapatan, Glan, Malungon, Maasim, Kiamba and Maitum) with 141 barangays. About 66 percent of the province’s total land area is a forest land. Half of this is highly cultivated for corn. These are in Malungon, Maasim, Malapatan, and Glan.

The common mode of transportation in Sarangani were Bus and other Public Utility Vehicles but most of the people were riding motorcycles to reached the barangays but to reach the Indigenous People farmers you have to walk for an hour; nowadays most of the Sarangani pushed their children not to imitate them on not going to school because most of the native in Sarangani was not engaged in school so, the local migrators easily scammed them to sell their land in exchange with can goods.

Coconut is the major crop of Sarangani Province that’s why it is the priority commodity covered under PRDP. Other than copra which is the traditional produce of coconut farmers, Virgin Coconut Oil (VCO) is the subject of value chain analysis. Other major crops grown are palay, corn, banana, sugarcane, pineapple and mango. 

For livestock, swine is considered as the most producing number of heads grown in the region, while chicken tallied as the highest in poultry.

The fisheries industry in the province comprises of marine, inland and aquaculture fisheries. The coastline possesses rich fishing grounds as well as areas suitable for fishponds.

Marine fisheries can be further divided into Municipal and commercial fisheries. Its Major Fishing Grounds are Sarangani Bay, Celebes Sea, Sulu Sea, Moro Gulf, Eastern Pacific.

Commonly caught species in municipal fisheries in Sarangani Bay are: anchovy, barracuda, damsel fish, emperors, squirrel fish, surgeon fish, threadfin, trigger fish, goat fish, grouper, jacks/trevally, milkfish, moonfish, mullet, parrot fish, flying fish, fusilier, rabbit fish, sardine, scad, and snapper.

The volume of production in 2015 is 18,643 metric tons: 128.67 from commercial, 10,139.06 from marine municipal fishing, and 8,375.51 from aquaculture (PSA).

Based on PSA’s report in 2018, the province of Sarangani made a slight decrease of 9.1% from its 45.2 rate in 2015, now 36.1% poverty incidence rate among families. This is also means that a family of five needs an average annual per capita poverty threshold of Php 23,282.00 to reach the basic needs of a household.
