Introduced in 2007, the Mindanao Rural Development Program Adaptable Program Loan 2-Community Fund for Agricultural Development (MRDP APL2 - CFAD) was implemented in the 12 municipalities of Bukidnon to give the disadvantaged and vulnerable sectors, including women, the opportunities for increased income from agriculture and fishery production, including allied value-adding activities using appropriate and sustainable technologies. Of the 12 municipalities in Bukidnon, Damulog and Don Carlos had the most number of sub-projects on crops particularly corn with the most number of women farmers engaged in corn production. Generally, this study was conducted to determine the effectiveness of the MRDP APL2-CFAD in improving income and achieving food security among the Bukidnon women.
