Helping Another Small Business in the Philippines

The Covid-19 pandemic in the Philippines has been long and drawn out, and our artisans have suffered sickness, supply chain issues, lockdowns, and rationing. Elevita has tried to aid wherever possible, and in 2021 we had the opportunity to help Hirly Arts Handicrafts grow their business by helping them build a Kubo, or crafts hut, and by purchasing needed equipment, such as a jigsaw machine and press drill, which are very important to their work. Prior to this they had to rent the machines, but now they can do the work in one week that previously took one month.
