The ACPC joined the second Bilis Ipon Digital Inclusion Caravan hosted by Land Bank of the Philippines (LANDBANK) on May 3, 2024 in Cavite.

Ms. Rachel Bustamante of the ACPC Monitoring Division read the ACPC’s Message of Support on behalf of Executive Director Jocelyn Alma R. Badiola. “ACPC pledges to continue our strong collaboration with LANDBANK, working hand in hand to reach even more farmers and fisherfolk with the financial resources they need to thrive,” said Exec. Dir. Badiola in her message. “Our current credit programs, namely the AgriNegosyo, Young Agripreneurs Loan Program, and Survival and Recovery, or SURE Assistance Program, were designed to complement the initiatives of LANDBANK in filling in the gaps, to reach the farthest corners of our agricultural landscape.”

The LANDBANK committed to undertake financial literacy programs for small farmers and fishers, including Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries by informing them on how to avail of LANDBANK’s agri-related lending programs such as the AGRISENSO (Agriculture Growth and Resource Integration through Strategic and Enhanced Delivery of Support and Opportunities) Lending Program.

The Philippine Crop Insurance Corporation (PCIC) also showed support for the caravan.

The event was attended by more than 130 farmers in the area.
