Huesitos de Wilde


Project with Huesitos de Wilde
This loan is for the purchase of both dry and wet leather to expand the production of palitos (chew sticks for dogs).
The cooperative began producing in 2007. The cooperative Huesitos de Wilde is a recovered factory that arose from the bankruptcy and subsequent asset-stripping of an enterprise that made pet products, primarily dog bones and chew sticks. After meeting with the Mayor of Avellaneda, several of the workers decided to turn the business into a cooperative. Of the nearly 130 workers that worked in the private factory, 28 people from different important areas such as supervision, administration, production, etc. stayed behind. Now, 20 of these same workers make up the cooperative, with 5 others in trial periods. The machinery belongs to the workers, as they bought it in auction. Their expropriation request has been approved by the Lower House (much like the House of Representatives), but has not yet been taken up by the Senate.
