Argentine cooperative to deliver first lot of garments
Feb '12
A woven-garment unit, set up as a cooperative in the Argentine city of Tartagal, is ready to deliver its first consignment of school uniforms to educational institutions in the city.

The first batch of white aprons and coats is expected to be supplied this month to various kindergarten and other schools in the city.

The uniforms have been made by all women workers who work in shifts. The women are also trained in making sweaters, shirts and other garments.

The cooperative venture was set up last year with an initial budget of US$ 160,000. It included grant from municipal and provincial governments.

The garment unit has provided employment opportunity to about 60 women from Tartagal.

Compared to the need of only 18,000 uniforms in Tartagal, the province of Salta has a demand of 350,000 school dresses. Thus, there is a great opportunity for the cooperative to grow and meet the demand, Tartagal Mayor Sergio Leavy said.
