On April 12th, 2019, USAID EMPOWER Private Sector in partnership with Sida signed a grant to support apparel manufacturer Wear & Go to obtain BSCI and ISO international standards quality certifications. Once obtained, the certifications will enable the company to expand sales and exports to European markets and create new jobs.
Wear & Go specializes in the production of jeans, shirts, jackets, and sportswear. Since 2017, the company has been producing apparel for several prestigious Italian brands. It currently has 40 employees, half of which are women.
