Brief description of the livelihood:

Most dried fishes displayed at the Tandag City Market come from General Santos City, Pagadi-an City or even as far as Cebu City. In comparison, NAKU’s dried bangsi is bigger in size, marinated with salt, vinegar and other spices unlike those that are usually displayed at the market stalls. There are no deboned dried ‘bangsi’ available in the market as of yet. Thus, NAKU will be the first to introduce this product to the market.
