New equipment boosts production capacity at garment factory in Aravan district

AKIPRESS.COM – Up to 40,000 pieces of men’s, women’s and children’s apparel per day will be produced at Pasadena Moda’s new apparel factory in Aravan with equipment provided by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). A partnership with the US government has enabled the factory to employ more than 100 people, mostly local women.

Sonata Coulter, Acting Charge d’Affaires of the United States Embassy in the Kyrgyz Republic, presided over the handover of the equipment, along with Osh Region Governor Ziyadin Jamaldinov and Aravan District Governor Seitek Kulubaev.

Chargé Coulter noted that this garment factory is one of many businesses the United States supports across the Kyrgyz Republic. “In the past four years alone, we have helped over 120 Kyrgyz businesses to grow, increase sales, access new markets and, most importantly, create over 18,000 new permanent and seasonal jobs” , she said.

Pasadena Moda received overlock, coverstitch, straight line, and other machines through USAID’s Business Competitiveness Project. Over the next three years, the company plans to expand further and hire up to 500 additional people.

“The company effectively contributes to the reduction of migration flows, allowing a number of compatriots, our sisters, to live and work in their country of origin with their families and lead a decent life,” said Azimkul Zholdubaev , owner of the company. .

Pasadena Moda is a well-established company in the Kyrgyz Republic. Initially operating in an exclusively national market, the company now fulfills orders for large retail chains and supermarkets in the region. Pasadena Moda knitwear is certified to international quality standards.
