The aim is to help our COG congregations with an income producing opportunity to help support their pastors. This project will be to raise fish fingerlings for Grupong May-Palaisdaan Inc. (GM Inc.) GM Inc. is an association of fishpond, fish pen, fish cage, fish tank and aquarium entrepreneurs that engages in aquaculture whose main objective is to offer an affordable but organically produced fish for human consumption.
Mr. Marzo, president of GM Inc, will train COG participants on what needs to be done to care for the fingerlings. He will provide the fingerlings, the tanks and the feeds which he formulated using duckweed, an aquatic plant rich in protein.
The Church will put up approx. $600 to purchase the tank, the water pump and other necessary equipment to raise the fingerlings for one month, at which time fingerlings are sent to a larger pond to continue to grow and the church receives a new tank with just hatched fingerlings to care for.
