  • 6. MISSION Improved product quality, highly-educated and skilled human resource, increased productivity and sales, improved access to financing and support services, strengthened PO and maintained cooperation and coordination
  • 7. THE RAFFIA ENTERPRISE IN TUBIGON
  • 8. The Buri Loom Weaving Industry in Tubigon <ul><li>Production of raffia products are done individually: a weaver can finish ten pieces of placemat in a day and one roll of fabric (24x10) in 2 days. </li></ul><ul><li>The loom weaving industry in Tubigon started in 1989 and has been a significant source of income for many residents of the town. </li></ul><ul><li>The products of the industry - placemats, raffia rolls, table runners, tea mats - are made from buri strips and warped fiber, which are extracted from the leaves of buri palm plants. </li></ul>
  • 9.  
  • 10. The Market for Buri Products <ul><li>Almost all of the loom woven products of the region are sold to the export market. </li></ul><ul><li>Buri products are bought from weavers by middlemen who, in turn, sell these to exporters, marketing agents and buyers; the bulk of orders coming from Manila-based exporters. </li></ul><ul><li>In recent years, more than 80% of total provincial production was exported to the USA, Japan and Europe. </li></ul>
  • 11.  
  • 12. TLMPC <ul><li>In 1993, 35 weaver-households formed the Tubigon Loom Weavers Multi-Purpose Cooperative (TLMPC) to coordinate their individual weaving efforts. </li></ul><ul><li>After a few years in operation, the cooperative encountered a serious cash flow problem. </li></ul><ul><li>Many weavers and suppliers of raw materials who had received cash advances from the cooperative failed to repay these advances. </li></ul><ul><li>Despite the crisis, the cooperative continued operations, although at a greatly reduced level, at a 25 loom production facility made of non-permanent materials located in Pinayagan Norte, Tubigon, Bohol. </li></ul>
  • 13. PARTNERSHIP WITH PACAP <ul><li>2007, TLMPC received PACAP funding with VICTO serving as the intermediary proponent. </li></ul><ul><li>Objectives: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>PO development and strengthening </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Product development and enhancement </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Institutionalize ecological tourism at the municipal level thru multi-stakeholders partnerships </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Market expansion </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Specifically, for: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>diversification of the product lines </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>more aggressive marketing and product promotions through participation in trade fairs and exhibits </li></ul></ul></ul>

  • 15. <ul><li>The grant and the new 40 handlooms donated by FUNDACION SANTIAGO enabled them to diversify into, among others, like: placemats with various designs, bags, slippers boxes, lanterns and more… </li></ul><ul><li>Product diversification was a second activity funded by the PACAP grant. </li></ul><ul><li>Before the project came, weavers had been limited to a few products, such as: plain placemats and raffia rolls. </li></ul>
  • 16. <ul><li>PACAP assistance also enabled the cooperative to conduct a more aggressive marketing strategy to reach out to Manila, Cebu and Bohol buyers. </li></ul><ul><li>This strategy involved the participation of the weavers in regional and national trade fairs to establish contacts with traders. </li></ul>
  • 17. <ul><li>Finally, the PACAP grant enabled the cooperative to streamline its production operations and institute quality assurance measures. </li></ul><ul><li>Currently, the cooperative has: </li></ul><ul><li>- Product quality controller (to determine the quality and acceptability of finished products) </li></ul><ul><li>- Purchaser (who is in-charge of the procurement of raw materials) </li></ul><ul><li>- Raw material dyer/bleacher (who is responsible for the processing of raw materials from buri palm leaf sheath to buri fibers). </li></ul>JUANING OLET BEBIC
