Consider a cooperative as an opportunity of freedom. This is how 14 workers of the cooperative, de Kbrones, see it. The large majority are ex-prisoners. This cooperative began in the framework of a programme of re-integration which aimed to integrate people through cooperative work. It is the very first cooperative of its kind in Argentina and the second in South America. It is active in the sector of textiles and leather goods. This enterprise is the proof that it is possible to work to relinquish delinquency through the cooperative experience.
