PCIC VP-CBAG Antonio S. Uy II spearheaded the handing over of checks to farmer-beneficiaries of various PCIC agricultural insurance programs.
The event was also an opportunity to orient the subsistence farmers of Asturias on the free agricultural insurance programs such as the Agricultural Insurance Program for farmers and fisherfolk listed under the Registry System for Basic Sectors in Agriculture (AIP-RSBSA) and the Agri-Fisheries Insurance Program of the Cebu Provincial Government.
