“Gawas sa libreng liso gitagaan pajud mi ug oportunidad sa DA nga makadisplay sa Kadiwa sa among mga abot aron mahalinan ug makakwarta mi.”


(Aside from the free vegetable seeds, we are also given the opportunity by DA to display our produce in the Kadiwa so we can earn money.)
This was the statement of Mercy Entac, 57 years old and president of the Pandaitan Farmers Association in Tanjay, Negros Oriental during the recently held Kadiwa ni Ani at Kita in Dumaguete City.
“Nalipay kaayo mi ug dako sa mga gipanghatag sa DA nga mga liso sa utanon ug abono kay dili na mi kinahanglang mokoot pa og puhunan para ining gamay'ng negosyo,” Entac said.
(We are very happy of the vegetable seeds and fertilizers given by DA since we will not anymore get from our pocket the capital of this small business.)
“The vegetables we are selling are from the vegetable seeds that the Department of Agriculture-7 (DA7) has given us,” Entac said.
Liberata Tangunan, a consumer from Brgy. Buntod, Bacong extended her gratitude to DA for implementing the Kadiwa that lets them taste pure and fresh vegetables.
“Organic is a lot better for it is healthy and safe to eat since it is free from pesticide residues,” Tangunan said.
Sally Café of DA7’s agribusiness and marketing division said that the Kadiwa provides marketing opportunities for our small farmers.
“This kadiwa is also reducing the layers of trading which contributed to the higher prices of agricultural commodities,” Café said.
She added that through the Kadiwa, farmers can sell directly their produce to the buyers and consumers, for them (farmers) to have an increased income and for urban communities to have access to safe, fresh and quality farm produce at an affordable prices.###
