My friend's abaca business is doing well. They only started with making baskets out of abaca leaves when she was young. I still remember helping them out whenever I stayed with my cousin's in the province during summer vacations. I saw her a couple of years ago and she said they have expanded and making fabrics out of the leaves; designers from abroad are ordering bulks from them. Now I heard from my cousin that they are into furniture making too. Although they are sourcing out other local materials, abaca leaves are still their main material. She will be here next week to ask us for help because she wants a reliable furniture retail software. I think getting one is a great idea especially now that her business is growing.
