May bagong proyekto ang Philippine government para sa ating mga OFWs.

May bagong proyekto ang Philippine government para sa ating mga OFWs.

The Department of Agriculture (DA), Philippine Cacao Industry Council, and the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) are set to launch the OFW Agriculture Business Investment Program this year, according to the Philippine News Agency (PNA).

Sa programang ito, hinihikayat ng gobyerno ang mga OFWs para mag-invest particularly sa cacao farming. Ang cacao ang raw material na ginagamit sa paggawa ng cocoa and chocolate products.

Bakit nga ba cacao?

First, the Philippines has ideal climate and soil type for cacao farming. In fact, sa ngayon, maganda na talaga ang demand para sa cacao sa Pilipinas at sa ibang bansa. Pangalawa, stable rin ang industry at hindi masyadong prone to fluctuations. At pangatlo, hindi rin ganoon kataas ang kailangan na capital para rito.

Sabi ng DA, aabutin ng 4.7 million to 5 million metric tons ang global demand for cacao by 2020, at may projected na shortage na 1 million metric tons. At dito na papasok ang Pilipinas. According to the government, this is the best time for OFWs to invest in the industry.Three years ang kailangan bago makapag-harvest ng cacao. After that, investors are estimated to get a five-percent raise in their investments, monthly.

Simple lang ang investment program ng gobyerno, OFWs in particular country can organise a group that is interested in setting up a corporate farm. Crowd-funded ang capital, ibig sabihin, kahit sino pwedeng maging investor.

OFWs in Hong Kong will be the first to invest their funds that will develop a corporate farm with a minimum of 50 hectares.

The program will soon be replicated in other countries like Singapore, Korea and the UAE.

Kasalukuyan pang dine-develop ng gobyerno ang program. Magandang investment opportunity ito. Stay tuned for updates!
