The People Bolivian farmers co-op formed by 1,200 families
The entire manufacturing cooperative based in Bolivia employs 1,200 families. From farmers in the highlands to fiber processors in the city, and the teams of women who knit the finished product from their homes, these families maintain ownership over the entire manufacturing process as well as its development. By working from home, the women can dedicate more time to family culture, while benefiting from stable living conditions and fair wages. Each of these aspects contributes to a larger process that supports local lifestyles, Andean craftsmanship, and the future of this community.
