MRDP-RPCO 13 Conducts Bookkeeping Seminar to CFAD Recipients
Trento, Agusan del Sur - Proper recording on every transaction within an organization is fundamental for good management.
The underlying principle that prompted the accounting division of the Department of Agriculture Regional Field Unit 13 the Regional Program Coordinating Office (RPCO) to conduct bookkeeping seminar to recipients of livelihood projects funded by Mindanao Rural Development Program (MRDP) particularly under the Community Fund for Agricultural Development (CFAD) component.
Gerry Leop, accounting division chief said that based on experience during projects monitoring, some of the peoples organization who are recipients of MRDP-CFAD failed to show proper financial records.
As per assessment, recipients lack the necessary knowledge to do the recording or bookkeeping, thus Leop said they decided to extend such seminars to interested recipients.
One of such simple bookkeeping seminar took place last November 12, 2010 in Trento Agusan del Sur right after a ceremonial launching and awarding of certificates to four recipients of CFAD projects.
Gracing the occasion were CFAD Regional Coordinator John Gamboa of DA RFU 13, Mayor Johnmark Billanes, DMD and other local officials of Trento LGU and members and officers of the four PO recipients.
The recipients are Trento Agusan Manat Farmers Association Incorporated and Barangay San Isidro Farmers Association both recipients of Banana Cassava and Carabao Production; Road 75 Indigenous People’s Cooperative with their Abaca Intercropped with Cassava and Carabao Production; and Tudela Farmers Association with Carabao Production with Ampalaya.
Each proponent is required to submit financial records to MRDP through their municipal accounting office to liquidate the 250,000 pesos funding support.
The simple bookkeeping seminar followed shortly with Gerry Leop assisted with Britta Paulin. (Aurell P. Arais/RAFID DA CARAGA)
