Why a Cooperative ?
Starting, joining, or working in a cooperative...
A vocation that goes beyond profit.
Cooperative entrepreneurship is based on international cooperative principles and fundamental values such as justice, economic democracy, and solidarity. It reduces inequalities, creates jobs, strengthens local communities, and promotes sustainable development.
Cooperatives have shown great resilience during economic crises, which is explained by the fact that members tend to be more willing to work together to overcome difficulties. This makes them able to adapt to economic and environmental challenges.
The profits of a cooperative are distributed equitably among members, usually based on their participation or use of the cooperative's services, which reduces economic inequality.
Cooperatives exist in a variety of sectors, from agriculture and information technology to health and education. They can adapt to a variety of needs and offer a variety of services.
