About the Sibimbe Cooperative:
This sewing cooperative is named after the Sibimbe River, where the founding seamstresses learned to swin, in the Los Rios area of Ecuador. Like a river that connects people and places, Sibimbe connects these women who are learning to make their way in a global economy. This social enterprise partners with Escuela Anne Stevens and the non-profit Center for Contemplative Justice, both established by Reverend Becca Stevens of Nashville, Tennessee. Sibimbe launched its business by creating healing oil pouches for Thistle Farms, its sister in a shared trade alliance of social enterprises.
The Reverend Gina Angulo, priest at Escuela Anne Stevens, says, "The purpose of this cooperative is to provide decent work and to improve the quality of life for women. It is our hope that in the future there will be many more women that can be a part of Sibimbe.
