On January 6 in Barangay Caruray, the three associations including Purok Improvement Club ng Sitio Gawid at Samahan ng mga Katutubong Tagbanua sa Caruray – Panamin at Candamia Chapter received their chickens, vitamins, and other materials to start their business and egg production at the turnover ceremony that is under the Chicken Layering Production Program.

This is an intervention by the Municipality of San Vicente in support of the Mayor’s Office-Livelihood Team, Municipal Social Welfare and Development Office and Municipal Agriculture Office to proceed with the livelihood program. Before the turnover ceremony, the beneficiaries attended orientation and Lakbay-Aral that will help them to manage and improve their business. There were a total of 230 ready-to-lay (RTL) chickens in associations and expected to lay eggs after two weeks or in February. The Ready-to-Lay chickens have a 95% of egg production every day and every association has an average of one and a half tray. The earnings from the eggs are also used in maintenance, feeds, vitamins and medicines, labor, operation, and association shares.

“Ang sabi nila [sa kanilang message of commitment], it’s the first time na sila ay nakatanggap at na-feel nila ang government especially doon sa Candamia at Panamin kasi iyon ay mga IP area natin. Malaking pasasalamat nila sa LGU thru Mayor Amy [Alvarez] na nabigyan sila ng atensyon,” Ms. Karen V. Andonga stated.

Ms. Karen V. Andonga, a Community Affairs Officer I, she also said that “Itong ibinigay natin sa kanila ay Ready to Lay (RTL). Nasa 4 month’s old na ang mga manok at ang sabi ng supplier ay two weeks after nila ma-receive ang manok ay mags-start na ang production ng egg. Every area na iyan ay may natanggap silang P188,000 to P190,000 grant. Kasama na riyan ang mga feeds, manok, multivitamins, cash for work and others,” ani Andonga. “

“Nagcash-for work tayo para buuin ang kanilang poultry. Binigyan natin sila ng mga materials like pawid, hardware materials, screen at mga PVC. Lahat ng mga kailangan para mabuo ang kanilang poultry ay ibinigay natin iyon sa kanila. It is a grant. Grant sa kanila, palaguin nila ang kanilang livelihood para makatulong sa individual members ng association nila,” Andonga added.

In the latest report from the Information & Communication Section of San Vicente, Palawan on April 28, the beneficial associations started to earn from egg production. The chicken started to lay eggs in February. A tray of eggs can be sold for Php200.

In an interview from the Information & Communication Section of San Vicente, Palawan to Ms. Karen B. Andonga in the Livelihood Unit this April, she said that “Instead na bumili ang mga tindahan outside the Caruray, sila na ang nagsusuplay. Hindi na kailangan pa ng [sa Sitio Gawid at Candamia] na pumunta ng Roxas at Caruray proper para lang bumili ng itlog. Mayroon na silang average income daily na 300 pesos.”

The Chicken Layering Production Program is one of the Livelihoods from the Municipal Government of San Vicente aside from the Fish Processing in Sitio Panindigan at Banana Processing in Bgy. Sto. Niño was promoted by the local government unit (LGU). The Municipal staff will continue to monitor and help them to succeed in their business.
