Why are we here?

When PEF identified Bukidnon as an area, the province still records 53.6% poverty incidence versus the national average of 26.3% in 2015, including the focus municipalities of Impasugong, Talakag, and Pangantucan.  The province has rich natural resources and agriculture is the main economic driver.

Various crops can be found in Bukidnon including corn, cane sugar, vegetables, abaca, rice, cassava, coffee, banana, pineapple, rubber, palm oil, and cacao.


Several partners and collaborators are also actively working in areas in Bukidnon where PEF operates, including ACDI-VOCA, GIZ, MASS-SPECC, CMU, Del Monte Foundation, Kasilak, Kaanib, DTI RAPID, PRDP, PhilFIDA, DA, and DENR. With all these assets, products, and stakeholders present, the communities have a greater chance to improve their poverty situation.

How do we achieve self-sustaining and resilient households in Bukidnon?

PEF aims to provide a holistic approach to making a difference in its priority areas through its local partners. We continue to catalyze the local economy by supporting consolidation activities of various agricultural commodities (coffee, abaca, and vegetables); short-term microfinance projects (agro- enterprise MSMEs, ready-to-lay egg machines, and dairy); and general development services (construction of potable water system).


To ensure a greater chance of success in implementing these projects, PEF supports institution-building for organizational growth and SE-based capacity-building such as agro-enterprise development, post-harvest training, marketing, accounting, and inventory management.
