Inmates at the Garment in Naboro.
As of 31st December 2012, the Garment industry incurred a profit of approximately $10, 553.81. This is a positive indicator and reflects well for this Small Business Unit (SBU) considering the limited resources and of course the disadvantage of its location.
This SBU is located at the Medium Corrections Centre in Naboro and is manned by inmates under the supervision of officers.
The main products from this unit include skirts, bula shirts, kids clothes, sulu jaba, mens’ sulu and hats for kids and adults, among many others.
The Tailory is now focusing on market development towards growth and generating more sales revenue to achieve its breakeven target.
Some of the projections for 2013 include achieving sales of $180,000 with profit of $60,000 provided we secure orders for all inmates’ issues; develop niche markets like at schools and sporting events; develop YRP clothing label and line further.
