Jiggy Manicad & Maki Pulido Explores The Lives Of Very Poor Farmers In 'Reporter'S Notebook'

JIGGY MANICAD and Maki Pulido focus on the second-poorest sector in our country, the farmers as stated by the National Statistical Coordination Board, for the second instalment of “Reporter’s Notebook” 8-part anniversary special tonight. It’ll show the reasons why farmers continue being poor as they travel from Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao to check the real status of the country’s farmers. From the coconut farmers in Quezon, the sugarcane farmers of Negros Occidental, you’ll hear their issues, worries, and wishes addressed to the government. Past and present administrations have passed and implemented large-scale programs and projects in order to alleviate the condition of the farmers but until today they are still knee-deep in poverty. Despite their taxing work, earnings remain so little for majority of these farmers. Find out why in Sektor: Magsasaka, Binhi ng Kahirapan on November 27, Tuesday, after Saksi on GMA-7.
