Abra farmers unveil P52 M worth farm–to–market road
by Janice Agrifino

The Second Cordillera Highland Agricultural Resource Management Project (Charmp2) along with various stakeholder-representatives from the provincial, municipal and barangay local government units rejoiced with the beneficiaries in Barangay Barit-Botot, Luba after the 21-kilometer Luba-Villaviciosa farm-to-market road was formally turned over to them on Feb. 9.

The rehabilitation of Luba-Villaviciosa FMR subproject, which is a provincial road, is worth P52,607,773.40, implemented through the original counterpart-sharing scheme of 40 percent for Charmp2 and 60 percent for the LGU.

“I believe that this road is an instrument for development. It may not be fully concreted but it is already a good start as the community became more accessible. We are hopeful that through other fundings, the road will be fully concreted in due time,” said Project Director Lorenzo M. Caranguian.

Along with the formal turnover and acceptance ceremony is also the turn over and acceptance of the concerned LGUs and project beneficiaries of the responsibility for the operation and maintenance of the said provincial road. 

Agyaman tayo ta adda ti Charmp2 nga nangited iti daytoy nga project uray nu aduti challenges ti pannakaimplementar na ket namnamaen yo nga dakami nga taga-Luba ket ituloy mi nga padur-asen daytoy nga project,” committed Luba Municipal Planning and Development Coordinator Dino Catulia I.

FMR beneficiary Elma Banteyaw recalled that the road before was full of holes and only motorcycles can pass through. Now, other kinds of vehicles can already traverse the area, making their travel easier and faster.

The community members go to nearby municipalities primarily to market their products and/or buy their basic needs. Janet Ibabin from Barangay Botot-Barit added that they start walking down the road at three in the morning to reach Pilar, a nearby municipality, by around 7 a.m. in order to market their products.

Others with more products to sell go directly to Bangued, Abra. There is also a passenger jeep the community may use when going down to Bangued or nearby municipalities to market their products.

Some of the main commodities in Barangay Barit-Botot are beans, ginger, rabong or young bamboo shoots, ube, and ampalaya.
