The Proud Pinoy entrepreneurs we have with us are two sisters who have
revitalized an old family business and brought it to new heights.
Meet Macy and Mariel Lazaro. They represent the fourth generation of the
family that owns the very first tannery in the Philippines.
But the family did not just make bags. They had furniture makers and served
the automotive industry as well. They also supplied the Marikina shoe
makers their leather needs.
Macy Lazaro just recounted how their family tannery started and flourished
through over a century of tanning hides in the Philippines. She also
recounted how much passion her mother had for leather-making, and so it was
natural for them to immerse themselves in the family business. Macy
graduated from UP Diliman with a degree in Fashion.
