Women’s sheep-raising co-operative in Tenuriye
The Kongreya Star Women’s Economy Committee founded a small co-operative with 3 women in the Tenuriye town in Qamishlo. The 3 women who came together under the co-operative roof started to work communally and raise sheep, strengthening women’s economy in the region. The women’s co-operative is the third in the region after the restaurant and park co-operatives. All work is done jointly in the co-operatives. Women start their work early in the morning by cleaning the shelter and then they feed the sheep. The women then sell the milk from the sheep in the market. Co-operative partner Xedice Elus said they aim to strengthen communality and women’s economy with their work. Elus added that the most important goal of the co-operative is to develop a common life culture among women, and called on all women to join co-operatives.
