The woman represents Philippine agriculture. She is responsible for the whole nation’s nourishment. She cultivates the land, takes care and harvests the crops and delivers produce to feed Filipino families.

She raises the TOFARM plate to acknowledge and give recognition to the noble champions of agriculture – our farmers.


She also leans forward to encourage advancement in agriculture. She uses the film strip as an “alampay.” The beauty and power of cinema is a tool to put a spotlight onto the farmers’ lives – their triumph and tribulations, challenges and success.
