Almustaqbal – the Future Society for Tailoring Co-operative was the first co-operative society in Tabqa, opened by the House of Co-operatives in the Democratic Self-administration in Tabqa in co-ordination with the city council and some people who bought shares and machines. There are about 30 participants, four of them are men and the rest are women.
In December 2018, the co-operative had more that 20 machines, including overlocking sewing machines, but still needed a big table, electric scissors and some other machines that make production faster.
Latifa Albarho is the co-chair. In a December 2018 interview, she said, “After opening the co-operative we will sell the products in the private sector, we are planning to open a shop in the future to sell the products, and also to manufacture uniforms for schools and the Internal Defence Forces.”
