In this sense, Wilman Dicuru, director of the Ministry of Communes in the state of Delta Amacuro, added that the Communal Textile Plan is currently developing in four states, and Delta Amacuro expects to make a total of ten thousand school uniforms, eight thousand for the Tucupita municipality and two thousand for the Casacoima municipality.
A dream made in Revolution
The producer Placida Pacheco, from the UPF Discipulo de Jesus and representative of the Mother House of the Ruiz Pineda parish, explained that she made her dream of being a seamstress thanks to the contribution given to her by the revolutionary government.
“I began the art of sewing with a sewing machine. Now with five enterprising women, I can make flannels, chemises, and school overalls in my workshop. Thanks to the support provided by the Ministry of Communes through Safonapp and Fondemi, we not only have the raw material, but we have also been able to repair and maintain the sewing machines”.
Similarly, Luz Maria Tovar, Yiret Cooperative Association produce, called on mothers to value the work and effort to ensure that students have good quality uniforms.
Finally, Nellys Blanco, producer of the Textile Plan of the San Rafael parish, added that “the fabric we use has nothing to envy to that produced by private companies, which shows that the country’s Communes do produce.”
