Transporting their agricultural products from their hilly and mountainous area in Brgy. Pag-asa, Sablayan, Occidental Mindoro to the nearest access road is the major problem of the seven (7) Indigenous People (IP) tribes.

Their agricultural products were being transported using wagons pulled by carabaos, some carried it (two (2) to three (3) kilometers from their area) on their back by foot and some uses “balsa” when crossing the river.  The transportation costs Php 20-30.00 per sack. Products were ultimately damaged upon reaching the market and only a small portion of it was sold.
