About us:

Habi was a product of a thesis project in Ateneo: management and management of applied chemistry majors. In their 4th year: required to create a business and to implement in on the second semester. Went to a 3-day immersion in an urban-poor area in Quezon City in the Payatas where they came face-to-face with one of the big problems of the area. The idea to turn rags into shoes was introduced. Provide the mothers who are living in squatters’ area of Payatas productivity and a chance to livelihood… empower them and giving them a sense of contribution to the household.
