CHARMP2-funded postharvest facility soon to rise in Atok
by Janice B. Agrifino

A post-harvest facility will soon rise in Atok, Benguet.

Local officials, community members, the Balangabang Multi Colors Farmers Association (BMCFA) and staff members of the Second Cordillera Highland Agriculture Resource Management Project attended last Oct. 3 the groundbreaking for the P1,068,094.78-worth facility, which will be built at Km. 4, Cattubo, Atok.

The idea of building a post-harvest facility started five years ago when the group said a packing area for cutflowers was needed, recalled BCMFA member Rhudylyn Wacay.

The BCMFA is a beneficiary of the Charmp2 livelihood assistance fund.

Of the total project cost, P747,666.35 or 70 percent was provided by the Charmp2 Scale Up while P320,428.43 or 30 percent will come from the BMCFA.

The fund was released through the Bad-ayan Buguias Multipurpose Cooperative, which is tasked to assist the association on the financial side of the livelihood group’s enterprise. The cooperative will also be monitoring the proper use of the fund.

The facility is also envisioned as a consolidation and marketing area for agricultural produce and as written in the association’s business plan.

Wacay said the facility will benefit not just the association but other Charmp2-assisted livelihood interest groups as well. Non-members can also use the facility but with corresponding fee as part of BMCFA’s income generating activities. Part of their collections will be used for the maintenance of the said building.

The BMCFA together with members of the community will lead the construction while partner local government units and the Provincial Coordination Office will be monitoring the progress of the project. The Provincial Coordination Office will also be providing technical assistance to ensure that the program of work will be implemented as planned.

The construction is expected to be completed by Dec. 31.
