SIXTY-SIX agrarian reform beneficiaries finally
received their certificates of
land ownership award (CLOAs) on Friday, April 16 from
Agrarian Reform Secretary
John R. Castriciones.
The momentous occasion put to an end to the
three decades of waiting for
the agrarian reform beneficiaries.
Castriciones and Undersecretary Emily Padilla of the
Support Services conducted
a door-to-door distribution
of land titles to a group of
four beneficiaries in Catigbian town.
He later joined the
“HEART Caravan” in Trinidad town.
The “HEART Caravan”
is a pool of services for the
province’s less privileged
organized by the provincial
government headed by Gov.
Art Yap in partnership with
2nd District Rep. Aristotle
gave the certificates of land
ownership award (CLOAs) to the rightful beneficiaries
of the Bohol Cattle Corporation property with an area of
111.8483 hectares in Barangay San Vicente, Trinidad
“Please do not sell your
farm lots. Harness them,
make them more productive
and be the country’s new heroes that you can be,” Castriciones told farmer-beneficiaries.
Director Resty Osias and
Bohol agrarian reform program officer-in-charge Eddie
Manginsay and other DAR officials and personnel joined
It’s going to be an unforgettable day for the farmer-beneficiaries in Kinanoan Farmers MPC, an ARBO
in ARC Eastern Trinidad,
Trinidad town as Castriciones would deliver to them
a dump truck worth P3.59
million and a four-wheel 90
horse power tractor worth
P4.15 million and another
dump truck for the Mufampuco under the DAR’s Agrarian Reform Community Connectivity Economic Support
Services (Arccess) project.
The DAR contingent will
later have a dialogue with
officials and members of the
Mantacida United Famers
(Mufampuco) in Catigbian
town before proceeding to the
Bohol Federation of Agrarian
Reform Communities Cooperative (Bfarcco), near the
provincial capitol in Tagbilaran City, along with Bohol 1st
District Rep. Edgar M. Chatto, to see the farmers’ finest
products that are on sale.
