Farmer Cooperatives

farmer group meeting

Farmer cooperatives are groups of farmers that work together to share funds, ideas, and equipment and collectively market their crops and receive government benefits. On a church’s request, H.E.L.P. provides a training on how to effectively run a cooperative. Although H.E.L.P. initially sets up these groups, they are completely run by farmers within the community.

Proverbs 27:17, As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.”

Setting Up a Cooperative

Creating a farmer cooperative is like making a new business, it takes a lot of work and dedication. Once formed, it allows farmers to receive low interest loans, government sanctioned subsidizes, and community support. It enables the farmers in an area to come together and work to benefit one another as well as share equipment and resources.
