The Youth LEAD Corner
Business Ideas Binder
The project was about preparation of user-friendly manual on business ideas that can be considered by marginal communities in the Philippines and abroad for their livelihood and enterprise projects. The Business Ideas Binder (BIB) is a compilation of ten business ideas including 1) coconut choir, dust and coco-net, 2) urban container vegetable gardening, 3) rag making, 4) eco-bricks and pavers, 5) bags and wallets from used sachets, 6) water hyacinth handicraft, 7) charcoal briquettes from agri-wastes, 8) paper charcoal, 9) organic compost, 10) pillows from used sachets. Market, technology and financial aspects are presented in the manual to guide readers (marginal communities) in choosing livelihood and enterprise options.
Research work, compilation, writing and finalization of Business Ideas Binder were done and final copies (e-copy and printed form) submitted to ICTSI and PBSP for circulation to assisted communities last February 2017.
