Pending the approval of the proposal, the LGUs regardless of their classification were recommended to opt for the cost-sharing arrangement included in the Project Financing Agreement, where the CHARMP2 shoulders 60% and the LGUs provide 40% equity to proceed with the implementation of proposed subprojects. The Project sought RDC-CAR endorsement requesting the DBM to allow the utilization of its savings amounting to Php 50 million from the Infrastructure for Rural Productivity Enhancement Sector Project for the CHARMP2 to hasten implementation of 47 subproject proposals of LGUs which were submitted to DA-OSEC for funding assistance. DA for its part is closely coordinating with the DBM on this matter. The Project has proposed during the Midterm Review Mission for the revision of the micro-credit subcomponent to a rural finance scheme aiming to support income generating and livelihood activities of beneficiaries. The proposed Livelihood Assistance Fund (LAF) will replace the microcredit to be managed by POs in the 170 barangays and aimed to benefit Livelihood Interest Groups (LIGs).The credit subcomponent isnot feasible for poor targetbeneficiaries in the ProjectareasRemarks: A Project Mid-Term Review Mission composed of IFAD Consultants and NEDA Staff was fielded from January
