Manos Del UruguayStreaming Video - 2011
It began in 1968 as a tiny commerce organization based in the Uruguayan capital of Montevideo. Today, Manos del Uruguay is an international business that exports to the U.S., Japan, and Europe. This program looks at the success of the women's garment-making cooperative, and in doing so, weaves together helpful Spanish lessons about day-to-day business practices as well as shopping for clothes and craft objects. Viewers learn how training is an important part of the Manos philosophy; how members are taught design, production, and administrative skills; and how global distribution occurs from a centralized location in Montevideo.
