Got your back! Angara supports PH farmers
Senator Sonny Angara supports Filipino farmers in their demand for bigger and more processing facilities to address oversupply and low prices of farm produce.
If this continued, farmers could easily go out of business, Angara said.
In a Facebook note, the abogado said he wants the government to intervene on behalf of farmers in this crisis and put long-term solutions for sustainable farming.
“The government should go beyond giving loans to affected farmers as this is just a short-term solution. What we need are solutions that are sustainable in the long-run such as providing them assistance in marketing their produce or facilities to process their harvest,” said Angara.
Senator Sonny Angara wants immediate government intervention to aid farmers hit by huge losses due to oversupply and low prices of farm produce, as well as put in place long-term solutions to make farming sustainable. #AlagangAngara
