The beneficiaries of the MoA from Purok 5B in Barangay Pampang are seen to benefit from the land acquisition program of the city. The property is owned by the Lim, Santos, Serrano, and Nepomuceno families.
The MoA states the sale of the property to the amount of P1,000 per square meter if paid in cash basis within a period of one year; or an amount of P1,500 per square meter if payable within a period of three years.
According to Rivera, LUPAHO is mandated to perpetually render efficient and effective public service to indigent Angeleños by providing them decent homes which can truly be called their own. The city councilor also urged the beneficiaries to practice the honor of settling obligations as stipulated in the MoA.
