The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) in Cebu recently conducted a two-day Human Resource Management Course for the cooperative officers of various agrarian reform beneficiaries’ organizations (ARBOs) in the province of Cebu to improve the management of their respective cooperative.
Provincial Agrarian Reform Program Officer II Elvira Bation said the training aims to provide necessary interventions to capacitate the cooperative officers. “This course focuses on human management of businesses and projects provided by the DAR,” she said.
The training, held at the Golden Prince Hotel, Cebu City, were participated by at least 24 cooperative officers from different ARBOs, which include United Farmers Multipurpose Cooperative (UNIFAMCO) of Bunga, Toledo City; Media Once Farmers’ Cooperative (MOFAMC) of Media Once, Toledo City; Carcar Community Farmers’ Multipurpose Cooperative (CCFMPC) of Canasujan, Carcar City; Liburon Multi-purpose Cooperative (LMPC) of Liburon, Carcar City; Hagnaya Organized People for Environment Multipurpose Cooperative (HOPEMPC) of Hagnaya, Carmen;

“The training is part of the Program Beneficiaries Development under the Social Infrastructure –Local Capability Building (SILCAB) and was conducted by a team from DAR Cebu headed by SILCAB Coordinator Judy Maratas,” Bation said.
