A project worth 1 million pesos was turned over to Sabang Tayaga Poultry Livelihood Association (SATAPOLA) by PGMC, making it the first-ever big-ticket livelihood project implemented outside its host communities.
After the success of a similar Egg Production Project with Punta Naga Sustainable Livelihood Association (PUNASULA) in Barangay Cagdianao, PGMC was encouraged to replicate the project to other non-mining barangays in Claver.
“In spite of being a non-mining barangay, we are able to receive this livelihood project. We assure PGMC that we will work hard for the success of this project,” said Ancelmo Olvez, SATAPOLA President. Members of SATAPOLA were empowered by PGMC through a series of trainings such as Philippines BizCamp and a 1-month actual farm management training in Adlay, Carrascal, Surigao del Sur accredited by TESDA.
“PGMC doesn’t only work for their business to prosper but also for the welfare of the whole of Claver because as we can see they're expanding the coverage of their SDMP to the non-mining barangays.” Hon. Arnel P. Laurena, Punong Barangay of Tayaga said.
