NAGA CITY, Philippines—Just like Juliette Binoche’s character in the movie “Chocolat,” Marian Gabrielle Bordado, 23, is bound to stir up her hometown with homegrown confections—premium chocolates with pili nuts instead of almond and macadamia.
Two years after graduating from college, Bordado is now earning as much as P60,000 a month during peak season. Thanks to her chocolate business, which all started as a requirement to pass her entrepreneurship course at the Ateneo de Naga University.
It just goes to show that anyone a little innovation and guts can go a long way.
Hopefully, in a month or two I (we) can have a big break too.
