Increase of income seen for fisherfolks in Padre Burgos

“Ang aking kita noon na PHP 200, ngayon PHP 500 (a day) na.” 

Obet Ocampo, 55, is one of the 24 beneficiaries of fiberglass boats and fishing gears provided by PEF as a subsidized loan.

He also manages the fishpond that produces grouper and lapu-lapu.

“Dahil mayroon ng fishpond, mayroon kaming pinagkakakitaan kahit hindi kami nagdadagat,” he said.

Ocampo is a member of Team Aqua, a group of 22 members organized by Yakap at Halik MPC Quezon 2 (YHMPC2) that was established to manage the coastal projects undertaken by PEF and the cooperative.
