The investment also covers the improvement of internal streets in Playa Venao, with paved gutters, benefiting a population of 4,275 residents. The total investment is B/. 2,854,322.16, benefiting residents, businesses, and hotels in the tourist area.

The second delivery focuses on the supply of tools for the storage and protection of harvested grains, providing 320 metal silos with a capacity of 20 quintals each.

This investment of B/. 297,203.20 benefits communities in the districts of Guararé, Las Tablas, Pocrí, and Pedasí, reaching a population of 45,061 inhabitants.

 

 

 

 

It is crucial to highlight that these tools will support small-scale producers, reducing storage and transportation costs, safeguarding the production by isolating Hantavirus, a disease that has significantly affected the population of Azuero, reported CONADES.

 

 

With an investment of B/.9.9 million, Panama rehabilitated 13.07 km of the El Ejido-La Espigadilla-Tres Quebradas-Agua Buena road, Circunvalación El Coto street, the side street next to the Virgen de Guadalupe parish, and the road to the La Espigadilla Cemetery. Image Credit- CONADES.
