May pera sa abaca! Legazpi Councilor Alan Ranola delivers funds raised from abaca fashion
Money can be made from abaca when it’s turned into beautiful things, and Legazpi City Councilor Alan Ranola was the bearer of these good tidings to the people of a resettlement site.
Ranola, who is running for Vice Governor, turned over a check worth P112,500 to the members of the Banquerohan Resettlement Site Neighborhood Association.
The money was raised during a fashion show held in October last year that featured clothes made from abaca fabric, Ranola said in a Facebook post.
Since abaca can be processed even by small entrepreneurs, does this mean that the resettlement site residents could have a steady source of livelihood from fashionistas?
“Handling over of the check worth P112,500.00 to the Banquerohan Resettlement Site Neighborhood Association raise during the BERGAMO Beyond Bespoke Fashion Show last October 29, 2018 at Solaire Hotel in Manila using the native materials Abaca Fabrics Pinukpok.😊,” Ranola posted.
