Carri's brand was established indifference to one of the first social entrepreneurs of Guyana Winslow G. Carrington. Carrington epitomized the central tenants of the Cooperative Republic Republic of Guyana, where "The Small Man is A Real Man." Carri, as Winslow Carrington was affectionately known, elevated himself by the "bootstraps" through the labor movement in the '50s and '60s while at the same time being involved in several small business ventures. Even in those early years, Carrington had a philosophical approach to business that was socially entrepreneurial. The foundation of that philosophy was one of self help.
