53 Barangay Bagsakan now in Zampen villages

PDFPrintE-mail

Fifty-three villages in Zamboanga Peninsula now have access to Barangay Bagsakan (BB) as of December 2010.

BB is a project of the Department of Agriculture (DA) in line with the national government’s Accelerated Hunger Mitigation Program.   It is a farm produce depot and distribution center that serves the community.  It serves as a trading post and showcase locally- produced vegetables and other farm products giving the farmers additional income.

These 53 established BBs are strategically located in catchment area for agricultural and fishery products.

Ferdinand D. Gamorot, chief of the Agribusiness and Management Division (AMAD) of DA Regional Field Unit 9 said BBs are established for farmers & fisherfolk to have accessible and direct market for their produce and for the community consumers to buy fresh, safe and cheaper products by as much as 15 percent than the market price because they do not pass through middlemen.

“At BB, we see to it that the suppliers are the farmers and fisherfolk not the middlemen.  In case of over production, AMAD can assist in marketing their products,” Gamorot emphasized.

Of the 53 BBs, 17  are in Zamboanga del Norte, 13  in Zamboanga del Sur, 11  in Zamboanga Sibugay, 9  in Zamboanga City and 3 in Isabela City.

For a BB to be operational, DA provides P30-T to augment their  operating capital and provide facilities and equipment such as: freezers, chillers, plastic crates, weighing scales and calculators, among others. In addition, DA also provides P50-T for the improvement of the BB building, when necessary.

As of December, DA 9 launched four BBs in Zamboanga del Sur located in Digon, Margosatubig; Legarda Uno, Dinas; Poblacion, Tabina and Moradje, Josefina.  

At Poblacion Tabina’s, mayor Greg Dayondon was overwhelmed by the project, saying: “daku kaayo ang bintaha nato nga giapil ang lungsod sa Tabina niining BB project tungod kay gihatagan kitag P50-T for store repair, P30-T capital & facilities.   Gihatagan og negosyo nga igo nalang tang maninda ug momanage kay kompleto naman ang gihatag sa gobyerno. (we have a huge advantage that our municipality is included in BB project because the government has given us a business for us to manage).”

He urged the officers of the Association of Women to manage this business properly and cooperate one another to make this government-given business to prosper considering the fact that this BB has an assured suppliers and customers from the 15 barangays of Tabina.

On the other hand, Barangay Moradje, Josefina was the last BB launched for 2010.  At least 5 barangays identified as source of vegetables, rootcrops, livestock and other agri-fishery products to serve 500 households.

Moradje BB was the most ideal site, revealed Sangguniang Bayan Teresito Villas who chairs the Agriculture committee because this will tremendously reduce the walking distance of people just to buy some two kilos of NFA rice to the market in Poblacion Josefina.

“Malooy kaayo ko sa mga tao nga magbaklay og pila ka kilometro padulong sa poblacion aron lang makapalit duha ka kilo nga  bugas. (I pity people from Nemeno, Dawa, Tagaytay, Ebarle and even from Moradje who have to walk how many kilometers to the Poblacion just buy some two kilos of rice.) 

“Now with BB in Moradje, people from these place can accessibly buy rice even fish as these commodities will be available at BB Moradje,” the councilor said in vernacular.

Vice mayor Catalino Adapon, for his part, noted that BB Moradje will be beneficial to residents here and neighboring barangays since instead of riding habal-habal to the market, they can already save their P60 fare for some fish and additional kilos of rice.

The barangay council of Moradje will be the one managing this BB. 

Two more BBs (under CY 2010 funding)  will be launched this February located at Timuay Danda, Kabasalan, Zamboanga Sibugay & Barangay Carbon, Malamawi Island, Isabela City.
