Elizabeth and her business Roxas Bags are trendsetters. They are making purses, bags, backpacks, and more from up-cycled jeans.
This is a family business where her husband and son find and purchase the used jeans. They are always on the lookout for the best deals. Her daughter helps sell the bags. All while Elizabeth is designing and making these fashionable and durable bags.
Currently, she is able to make about 10 bags a day. Working with her mentors she is looking at investing in a new sewing machine.
This will allow her to sew more bags each day. With more inventory, she will increase her profits.
She wants to be able to hire another employee and steadily grow her business.
Her daughter is also learning from the mentors and is finding new vendors that want to sell their bags.
They are all very grateful for the support from Mentors Philippines as they are able to become more financially responsible and save for the future.
