Platform Cooperativism Resource Library


A World Bank-financed project supports rural development and poverty reduction in one of China’s poorest provinces by organizing small-scale farmers into cooperatives and integrating them to the agricultural value chains.

  • Farmer members benefit from joint processing and sales of their products, salaries from working for the coop and a dividend in proportion to the shares they own.
  • Co-ops provide jobs and a source of income to rural women, returned migrant workers and older people.
