Tarlac City trains more livelihood beneficiaries as demand for handicraft rises
The city government of Tarlac said that the demand for the water lily handicraft products has been increasing.
With this, Special Projects Management Unit (SPMU) head Cynthia S. Chuidian said from the initial 25 families from Barangays Armenia, Buhilit and Banaba who were trained how to weave, more beneficiaries have joined the project and have undergone training.
These include the Kaisa Women’s Organization, persons with disabilities [PWD] belonging to the Samahan ng may Kapansanan [SAMAKA] and residents of Barangay Culipat.
Chuidian said aside from the popular wedding gift bag which is used to contain tokens and giveaways from the newly-weds, other products being made are baskets, trays, sleeping mats, sandals, and slippers.
The SPMU is also engaged in sustained product development, she said.
The official said that beneficiaries are also into the citronella oil production project.
They are now ready to respond to the growing market demand and have geared the project participants to increase production as orders come in, she added.
