TMC gives P3M worth Farm Equipment to Claver Farmers

A farm equipment worth P3 Million was donated by Taganito Mining Corporation (TMC) to 35-member farmers’ cooperative to help uplift their economic potentials.

TMC – through its Corporate Social Responsibility – identified Claver Red Mountain Agriculture Cooperative (CREMACO) to be its project recipient.

Thus, in 2017, CREMACO became the official rice supplier of TMC, where rice subsidy is given to the employees.

To further enrich them, a Rice Mill Complex is being constructed in barangay Daywan to readily make available the rice mill to local farmers and possibly reduce the palay buyers outside Claver.

Hence, this will make local farmers sell their palays at a more reasonable price.

And in the first quarter, TMC provided CREMACO four units farm equipment that include one unit combine harvester; one unit farm tractor with rotavator; and two units walk-behind transplanter.

The turn–over was attended byCREMACO members; NAC and TMC officers – VPO Engr. Aloysius Diaz; RM Engr. Artemio Valeroso; NAC ComRel Manager Edwin Nerva; DA Claver – Engr. Carlos Quirequire and RHNC representative, Mr. Ernesto Sulapas.

CREMACO Chairperson Joel Oinal expressed his heartfelt gratitude to TMC for its support and untiring commitment to help the farmers of Claver.

“Mapasalamaton kami sa CREMACO na nadugangan napud ang mga project na gihatag sa amo sa TMC. Naghinaot ako lakip sa mga miyembro, hinaot na magtinabangay kita para mapalambo hantod sa ato mga anak ug apo,” he said.

In his message, TMC Resident Mine Manager, Engr. Valeroso, said, “Very blessed kamo na naa na mo sa state-of-the-art farming, kumbaga innovative na. Kanang tractor, daro pa na.”

He further encouraged CREMACO, saying, “Gi-entrust ni sa injo ng company. Kinahanglan i-keep ni na trust. Basta Coop be transparent. Proper recording. Very supportive ang company sa inyo. You should have ownership.”

NAC VPO, Engr. Diaz, conveyed the importance of inclusive development, and that the farming sector should be uplifted. Also, Engr. Diaz started the blueprint to develop the farming sector of Claver.

TMC continues to commit itself for the development of it host and neighboring communities, and giving importance to uplift the lives of its project recipients.
