Project with Crometal
The cooperative Crometal is cashing a check with La Base so as to cover various routine debts that have been accumulating over the course of the year. To do this the coop needs to liquidify several payments currently in post-dated check form. The ability to more quickly access the cash they have already earned will enable them to clear debts and avoid further interest payments on the same. This is of such importance primarily because taxes and services can only be paid in cash.
The cooperative Crometal is a recovered factory dedicated to the production of industrial stands and scaffolding. Since La Base started working with the coop in 2005, production has soared, the number of worker-owners has doubled, and competitiveness has increased significantly. From 18 worker-owners in 2005, Crometal has increased to 35 compañeros today. Over the course of 13 loans Crometal and La Base have together fostered a close relationship with a great deal of trust. The cooperative has grown enormously and the types of challenges faced have changed continuously according to the scale of production. The purpose of this particular loan is to give Crometal access to liquid funds to pay taxes (VAT and Contract Work Taxes) and services (gas and light). The checks they need to cash represent the payment for an order they handed over in the middle of December. For this work they were given checks post-dated at 2, 3, and 4 months respectively. This will be the largest loan in La Base's history.
