Title : Technology Impact Assessment of Banana Slicing Machine
by MARCOS ERRAM BOLLIDO, EMILIO H. CEBU,
Abstract : Technology Impact Assessment (TIA) was conducted in barangay New Mahayag, Catbalogan City. The assessment was participated by the Mahayagnon Women's Association Daan sa Pag-asenso (way to Progress) association. The TIA focused on the use of Fruit Slicing Machine for slicing raw peeled banana to be processed into banana chips. There is an increase in output of banana chips produced by the machine, the association produced from 1 "kabolig" per day using the manual stripper to 4 "kabolig" per day using the slicing machine. The association increases its income from PhP100 to 1,000 every profit sharing. Other products were also produced by the association like calamansi puree, sweet potato, and cassava chips. The machine is effective since women increase their production of banana chips sold in their identified markets. The machine is user friendly, the woman can easily operate and use the machine for banana slicing. The time saved by the individual involved in banana slicing can already be devoted to other banana chips processing-related activities and other productive work.
