“Apart from the convenience these machines will provide them, they will also gain bigger profit because they would save a lot of money in their transportation expenses,” Bicol Regional Director Rodrigo Realubit​ said in a statement Monday.​

He added that the trucks are part of the support facilities for ​agrarian reform beneficiarie​s under the Linking Smallholder Farmers to Markets with Microfinance (LinkSFarMM) program of the DAR, which helps small farmers increase their income and enter a larger market for their goods.
