In this inevitable pandemic, there will be a lot of Filipinos who won’t be able to rely on their normal sources of income. Farming and agriculture are the backbones of our society. Without farmers, we wouldn’t have access to food and other basic necessities. Take a moment to really appreciate this profession and all the hard work and dedication the farm life requires. Our favorite healthy food such as rice, bread, pulses, fish, milk, fresh vegetables, fruits, and meat.
Small Farmers won’t be able to secure enough money for their families until our community quarantine is over.
Let your help be the lookout...
COVID-19 CRISIS HURTS MANY FARMERS ESPECIALLY SMALL FARMERS
I am Marvin Castigador a residence of Alibunan Calinog Iloilo Philippines.
I’ve been dreaming of going to the Farm with my Father ever since I was a kid. Now I just registered as a Small Farmer but due to this COVID-19, I wasn’t able to pursue the necessary papers and permits because of a lack of resources.
My father is a farmer and due to old age, he can no longer work to cultivate the farm.
Of some calamities in the past years the river ate up more than 2,000 square meters of the farmland and now the rest is barren.
It is near to the MEGA DAM PROJECT of JALAUR RIVER and it is also an Eco-tourism project.
Since I am the eldest son in the family, I have the duty and responsibility to restore a farm that is left of.
And it was a dream when I was a child to help my father on the farm...
The total area remaining is 8,838 square meters.
I am planning to put up MINI-FARM;
- A vegetable farm --- String Beans, Eggplant, Bitter Gourd;
- Poultry farm --- Free Range Chicken and Chicken Layers;
- Fish farm --- Catfish, and Carp fish.
I confidently make it by adopting modern farming.
Without your help, I will not be able to afford this Project. Unable to compete with other farmers and to set me further in achieving my goal. Supporting me in this campaign will enable me to focus on my Project rather than the finances. With your help, I will be able to produce more foods, Small Farmers would be stronger and better.
Small Farming is a dream come true.
