In addition, they built a 18x24 building complete with a concrete floor for about $5000 USD to house the Sewing program.

The cooperative has already sold some of its products and used the money to buy fans for the building. "It has given them a taste of what they can do and become independent and provide for their families".

The group has made arrangements with the hospital to make scrubs and with her children’s schools to make school uniforms. There are many things to help this group. E.g. Start a food pantry, deal with mother and child health issues, and money management.

Great work!
