GK Balik-balik Village is located inside a banana plantation in Brgy. Guihing, Hagonoy Davao del Sur. Their village’s name “balik-balik” came from the Bisaya term that means to go back. The Village where they are located has no other way out but to go back to where you entered. It hosts 30 Firsher folk families.
Fishing has been their main source of income and the one that brings food to the table. However, the household feel this cannot just be the only source of income especially in this time of pandemic. The fisher folks wish to have a secondary livelihood that will augment for the other needs of their families especially when fishing does not come everyday.
They propose to have a livelihood that they can just do from their own “backyard”. Raising broiler chickens is something they have come up with. Funds that will be raised will buy the initial chicks, their feeds and the logistics to make their fence.
With this secondary livelihood just in their backyard, the fisher folks wish to be able to earn enough that will allow them to save up for the future of their families.
