Catalyzing worker co-ops & the solidarity economy


Cecosesola was established in Barquisimeto, capital of the State of Lara, in the central western region of Venezuela, as a cooperative integration organization on December 17, 1967. It is a meeting place where more than 50 community organizations are active, integrated in a network of production of goods and services that brings together more than 23,000 members from the popular sectors. Our raison d'être lies in a transformative educational process based on equity, mutual support and responsibility.
