VILLASIS- ” Kailangang makita ng gobyerno na ang konting kalinga, konting tulong at konting projects sa ating magsasaka ay malaki ang bunga.” (The government should see that a little care, a small help and small projects to our farmers will bear big fruits).
This was told by Senator Alan Peter Cayetano to a group of corn farmers and irrigators associations, at the municipal hall’s conference room during his visit last February 21.
During the consultation-dialogue, Cayetano stressed that big income could come from little capital specially if used wisely.

Bakit natin hihintayin na ang gobyerno na sila lang ang gagawa ng proyekto? Cayetano said.

He turned over a check P100,000 check to the Villasis Corn Growers Association and another P100,000 to the Pangasinan Federation of Irrigators Association.
The check for the Villasis Corn Growers Association was received by Municipal Agriculturist Cornelio Atchuela and for the Pangasinan Federation of Irrigators Association by its President Oftociano “Anong” Manalo.

He urged them to use the funds for their welfare, saying that it could be loaned out to members with little interest and not 20% or 5/6 because it will not help the farmers.

” Ang 5/6 ay takbuhan ng mga tao. Pero nandito tayo para sa PiTiK o presyo, trabaho o kita at kaayusan. Gagayahin natin ang 5/6 pero hindi ang sistema.Ang programa ay may tatlong kondisyon. Unang kondisyon, madaling ipautang, walang papeles at linggo-linggo o araw-araw ang singil, pangalawang kondisyon, may interes na hindi lalampas sa limang porsiyento, at ikatlong kondisyon, kailangang may ‘enforcement mechanism’ na didisiplina sa miembros,” Cayetano said.

(Five-six is where people go for their needs But we are here for the PiTiK. Let’s copy the 5/6 but not its system. The program has three conditions. First condition, easy loan with no documents to be processed to be collected weekly or daily. Second condition, the interest should not be more than 5%. The third condition, your association must have mechanism to discipline the members).

Cayetano said the funds are not from the government and will no longer be returned to him or his office.
” Kayo na ang bahalang magpalago nito. When I will return, I hope that the money has already earned income,” he said.

Cayetano was joined by Abono Partylist Chair Rosendo O. So and was welcomed by Vice Mayor Paz Sison Rafanan.
After the farmers meeting, Cayetano dropped by at the “socialization hour” of the Federation of Senior Citizens Association (FSCA) where he donated P10,000.
