We drove to Sariaya, Quezon to visit Sentrong Pamilihan Ng Produktong Agrikultura Ng Quezon (SPPAQ-Foundation Inc).
This bagsakan center, administered by Ariel has been helping the farmers around the area. Farmers bring their produce and buyers from all over go there to buy vegetables.
You think only Baguio and Nueva Vizcaya has the beans, cabbage etc?
Farm inputs are lent to farmers, equipments are available for low rent rates, seminars are given to update and educate them.
We met farmer Felipe who has a nice story to tell. You will be glad that a hardworking man will now have confidence that radiates. He is a classic example of an empowered man.
