ix Livelihood Interest Groups (LIGs) from Bontoc, Mt.

In the morning of the 20th, a LAF transfer took place in Talubin for the turn-over of assistance to the LIGs from Talubin and Bayyo whereas; the turn-over ceremony for the six LIGs was held in the afternoon of the same day in Guina-ang.

The Waday Urnos, Waday Panag-asenso Organization, Inc., Khamoyo Organization, Inc. and Litangfan Men’s Association for Development, Inc. of Guina-ang, the Mabingwil Women’s Organization and the Association of Cow Raisers in the Upper West, Inc. of Dalican is into trading of piglets, feeds, pig production and meat processing while the Maligcong Young Farmers Organic Organization, Inc. of Maligcong is engaged in the trading of piglets, feeds, banana and other agricultural products.


The reason why almost all of the LIGs are engaged in the trade and production of pigs, according to Mr. James Cot-am, President of the Litangfan Men’s Association for Development and other members of the interest groups is that the demand for pigs in the locality is pretty high and supply is low.// Mary Joy Maguide
