Agriculture Secretary William Dar led the virtual ceremony launching the DA-ACPC “Agri-Negosyo (ANYO) SWINE R3” program and calibrated swine repopulation for ASF green zones on September 10, 2021.

The Department of Agriculture (DA), through its Agricultural Credit Policy Council (ACPC), has allotted an additional P300 million (M) for lending to backyard and semi-commercial raisers in “green zones” or areas free from the African Swine Fever (ASF).

In particular, the P300 M will help finance swine projects in four ASF-free areas, said DA-ACPC Director Jocelyn Badiola, particularly in Regions 4-B (MIMAROPA), 6 (Western Visayas), 7 (Central Visayas), and 9 (Zamboanga Peninsula).

Eligible borrowers include individual, start-up, and existing semi-commercial swine raisers (SCSR), small enterprises, and farmers’ cooperatives and associations. (Photo by Alan Jay Jacalan, DA-AFID)
