Kambing ang mag-aahon sa mahihirap sa Palawan – Gov Alvarez

Palawan Governor Jose Alvarez is hoping that the province’s 63 percent poverty index will be reduced by his goat farming initiative.

The politiko said funds for this project came out of his own pocket with the first batch of goats being distributed to poor residents of Taytay town.

Five or six goats were distributed per family, depending on the size of the land they have available, Alvarez stressed.

“We are testing this, and if it turns out to be good, I will request the Sangguniang Panlalawigan to empower the Community Affairs Department to have a fund for it,” the Palawan governor added.
