DA partners with NVSU in search for youth in agri-biz with grant program



Nueva Vizcaya State University (NVSU) hosted the evaluation for the Young Farmers Challenge Fund (YFCF): Kabataang Agribiz Competitive Assistance Grant Program from July 22 to 23, 2021 at the RET Conference Hall.

The YFCF is a competitive financial grant support program for students and entrepreneurs ages 18-30 who want to start agri-fishery businesses and is being implemented by the Department of Agriculture (DA). The grant is intended to provide seed cash for a proposed innovative agri-based micro-enterprise run by an independent youth or as a joint venture between two or more individuals.

The evaluation program was led by Mr. Josue A. Chua, OIC-Director of NVSU Research Program and a member of the Panel of Judges, and opened by Dr. Wilfredo A. Dumale, Jr., Vice President for Research, Extension and Training.

For Nueva Vizcaya, a total of 14 Business Model Canvases (BMC) were reviewed and passed the 30 mark score. Three BMC proponents were graduates of NVSU, Mahjong E. Moreno, Jade Michael R. Santos, and Christian Dave B. Calderon, while one in the group category, Myka M. Fragata, is currently enrolled.

An amount of Php 50,000 is given to the top three winners and represents the province at the regional level for a prize of Php 150,000. Six winners will be selected for the national level and get Php 300,000 each. #RET
