Hum Kisan Sangathan in Jhalawar district, Rajasthan, has been working towards expanding their weaver’s cooperative – Adarsh Hathkargha Cooperative Society – which was established in 2004. In the past one year 10 new weavers received training and 8 new handlooms were purchased. AHCS now has a total of 22 handlooms and employs 30 people.
