CANDABA – Some 1,200 farmers in this town benefited from the financial assistance of the Provincial Government, an official said.
Maria David, newly designated officer-in-charge of the provincial agriculture office, said Governor Lilia Pineda on Thursday visited the farmers at the Kapampangan and Tagalog regions and town proper.
David added there were only 590 farmers who are set to receive the benefit.
However, the governor decided to increase the beneficiaries after a large number of farmers flanked to the area, she said.
The beneficiaries were given P850 each, P650 came from the Provincial Government and the remaining P150 came from Pineda's personal funds. (Herbert P. Mapiles)
