Stella Quimbo wants to help homegrown shoemakers and other craftsmen get back to business after COVID-19 lockdowns.

The Marikina congresswoman and economist has filed a bill to honor and support their own industry by offering incentives to those who will try again.

“The shoe, leather, and tannery industries are struggling more due to the pandemic. And as a representative of Marikina, the shoe capital of the Philippines, I will continuously push for the development of these industries,” the politiko said.
