Women are now Much Powerful

Karşıyaka Mayor Hüseyin Mutlu Akpınar said:“With the aim to make women have more active roles in social and economic lives, in 2015 we established ‘Producer Women’s Cooperative’. Today it became of the the biggest women cooperatives in Turkey from which 560 women are benefiting. While making contribution to their family economies one one side and finding the opportunity to socialize on the other size, they became more powerful. We finally made our women, who improve their hand skills with the training, meet with art of ceramics and we obtained very beautiful results. I congratulate the producer women of Karşıyaka from the heart and I believe that they will represent us in the best way at 2017 Turkish 2nd Cooperatives Fair. We will continue to support them”.
