At the heart of Davao City, in the grounds of the 60-year-old Water Front Hotel, Dodoy Osorio, 40, gathers tuba (coconut wine) every day. He inherited the job as mananggete (coconut wine gatherer) from his father. He sells the tuba to hotel guests and in nearby barangays, earning an average of P400 a day. MindaNews photo by JULES L.
