COPELLO, María Mónica; POLINELLI, Silvia Noemí; MARTINEZ, Merlina  y  ALEGRE, Lorena. Social enterprises and community health. Subjective transformations in experiences of social cooperation. Psicol. Conoc. Soc. [online]. 2023, vol.13, n.3, pp.71-82.  Epub 01-Dic-2023. ISSN 1688-7026.

In this article we want to share the progress of the research that we are carrying out at the National University of Quilmes, from the Social Entrepreneurship and Community Health project. In the general objective of this project, we proposed to study in depth the subjective transformations that occur within the framework of social cooperation experiences, in order to identify and understand the elements that condition its expansion, as well as those tending to strengthen the field of the Social and Solidarity Economy (ESS). In this sense, we address the issue of social cooperation, understanding that it through socio-economic experiences favors access to rights - work, education and health - of people in vulnerable situations. From the broad field of social cooperation, we focus more specifically on the study of social enterprises, that is, those associative organizations that carry out a regular economic activity of producing goods or providing services with a defined social purpose, for the community and the social integration of people, particularly of socially vulnerable and vulnerable groups. Among the final reflections that we have been building, we are interested in highlighting that among the testimonies of the entrepreneurs, the collective emerges as a structuring of the organization, in this sense it is a participatory act, it is us, horizontality and trust. We are inclusive and diverse. It is considered healthy since it provides a framework for what is built and, in turn, acts as a symbolic space that produces identification processes of the entrepreneurs with the organization.
