A Spark of Hope in the Island of Fire PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 13 November 2013 05:55

Established in 2009, the success story of BFT ALTAMCO presents a ray of hope in the Island Province of Siquijor.

Siquijor, the third smallest island of the Philippines, is a rather sleepy province. As of  May 2010 its population is estimated at 91,066 (NSO).  The low population rate is due to high rate of outward migration, which in turn is caused by the lack of economic opportunities in the province. Sources of income are limited to farming, fishing, trading, lime mining and souvenir making.  Lately, however, the tourism industry is being developed and is providing an alternative livelihood to the inhabitants, particularly during summer months.

Nestled at the foot of the mountains of Sierra Madre and with an elevation of 2,734 feet above sea level, Barangay Belance is a remote Barangay of Dupax del Norte, in the Province of Nueva of Vizcaya.   It is located 37 kilometers away from Bambang, Nueva Vizcaya, the nearest public market-cum-business center of the Province.  Dupax del Norte are bounded by Barangay Macabenga on the North, Yabbi in the east, Binuangan in the south and Barangay Oyao in the west.


Barangay Belance is a unique rural barangay in the country characterized mainly by backward agricultural economy with poor infrastructures, including poor road networks.  Being situated in a mountain area, the site is prone to landslide. The population in Barangay Belance increased over the past two (2) years. The population is a mix of different cultures.  There are Igorots/Bugkalots from Benguet, Ilokanos and Tagalogs who migrated in the late 70’s and 80’s.  These were employees of companies engaged in logging and sawmills.

“Ngayon may ice cream na kami!”  exclaimed Mr. Fernando Padillon when he was asked what is the difference between the situation before and after the establishment of the BFT.  Sometimes we take for granted these simple joys but for the residents of San Quintin, ice cream is a novelty before the Barangay Food Terminal was established in their municipality. 


The fact that a simple product such as an ice cream is a rarity in San Quintin tells of the remoteness of the area. San Quintin is a fifth class municipality in Abra province. Situated along the outskirts of the Cordillera Mountain Range, it is more than an hour away from Narvacan, Ilocos Sur where the nearest public market is located.  Farms are rain fed with rice, corn and tobacco as the major crops.
