Women power in action in Davao Oriental

30 train for coco novelty items production 

            Thirty women in Manay town in Davao Oriental have undergone training on coconut novelty production to maximize livelihood for the province’s main product.

            Sponsored by the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), the Manay women were trained on new novelty products using coconut materials in the Upgraded Skills Training on Coco Novelties.

            The training led to five new designs for baskets, flower base, lei, Christmas decors and twig products. The training also equipped the women with the basics of product pricing, costing and marketing.

            The women would be organizing soon a cooperative, to be assisted by DTI in product packaging and marketing as part of efforts to increase awareness of Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in the province.
