The Provincial Fisheries Office of Cavite has completed the distribution of discount cards for the Fuel Subsidy Program of the Department of Agriculture (DA).

A total of 407 registered fisherfolk in Cavite each received a P3,000.00 worth of fuel products which can be claimed from a DOE-accredited or designated fuel station. These beneficiaries were identified based on the data from the municipal boat registration system (BoatR).

The Processing and issuance of discount cards were facilitated by the Universal Storefront Services Corporation (USSC) in Rosario last June 3, Bacoor City on June 7, and Naic last June 10, with the support of the Local Government Units.

The Fuel Subsidy Program is an initiative of the DA in partnership with the Development Bank of the Philippines that aims to provide support to the farmers and fisherfolk affected by the increasing price of diesel and gasoline. (ablatigay)
