Nanny’s Garden was established in 2003 in Catraman, Northern Samar by Peter
Custorio and his wife Selena Marie. They provide fruit-bearing trees,
ornamental plants, produce, and cater to the gardening and landscaping needs of
the region. They started the business at the suggestion of Selena Marie’s
mother to start her own nursery and garden. Their clientele is composed of
government agencies, schools, restaurants, a mall, and residents of the 24
municipalities of Northern Samar. They are the only business of this type in
the whole province of Northern Samar.
and Selena Marie envision a garden café to go with their nursery where people
can relax and enjoy nature. For this expansion, they would like to hire 7
workers. At present, they have 4 workers composed of a gardener, an
electrician, a carpenter, and a landscaper. They prioritize hiring the poor of the region and provide housing to the workers
aside from compensation.
Nanny’s Garden will be needing a working capital loan for additional
construction in their nursery, for construction of their garden café, and for purchase
of seedlings and other gardening and landscaping needs. The loan will be
provided by NPFC and LendAHand.
