Farmers now use the targeted area for road concreting as a primary route while traveling to the mountainous regions of Guinobatan and Sipi. Farmers will be encouraged to boost their output by the ease that the initiative would provide for them.
Since there is a plentiful supply of water close to the mountain’s base, it is projected that other agriculture-based businesses, such rearing livestock and poultry, would expand.
The target region is also close to the municipality’s industrial zone because it is anticipated that businesses would start to spring up there. The addition of concrete to the road will also protect bystanders from the risk that the typical muddy and slippery condition of the road poses, especially for students traveling to Guinobatan Elementary School.
By the end of 2017, the aforementioned financial benefits should lower the number of households with incomes below the poverty line from 133 HHs to 92 HHs, or from 57.58 percent to 40 percent.
The major goal of the planned project is to give residents and farmers an easier and better access road in line with national thrusts and the LGU’s current administration goal of eliminating poverty in the rural through a more enhanced road network.
Since the region is located close to the municipality’s industrial zone, this benefit will encourage farmers to grow more crops, the emergence of livestock and poultry rearing businesses, and the expansion of other entrepreneurial endeavors.
