Yesterday I met an enterprising woman from San Pablo City, Laguna. Her name is Ms. Edna Palad. She is a much sought-after resource speaker on designing handicrafts and fashion accessories. A graduate of UST school of Fine Arts, she owns a factory in San Pablo and her company is called Red Palm Ventures which is into the production of different items made from coconut by-products. Here are some of her designs from coconut shell:
A kid belt
According to Edna, these export-quality products are very affordable. In order to preserve the uniqueness of each design, they don't produce more than 10 items each unless it is for export.
She also mentioned that she earned the trust of her customers because her company produce items in accordance with specification especially in terms of materials and colors used.
"Marereject din ang orders kung mayroong hindi nasusunod na specification. Kaya ang advise ko sa mga nagnenegosyo, dapat sumunod lagi sa usapan kasi lugi ang aabutin mo kung nagkataon.", she warned.
Mabuhay ka Ms. Edna! Sana lumago ang business mo para mas maraming magtratrabaho sa iyo at makatulong ka sa pagpapaunlad ng bansa.
Ang gaganda ng products di ba? Saka sa halip na maitapon ung mga coconut shells ay napakinabangan pa.
