Introducing
MANAGEMENT OF CONSUMER COOPERATIVES

Consumer cooperatives in Zambia are rare and are common in police, ZNS and army camps located away from trading centres.  Although they are run as retail businesses, they are generally small and lack growth.  They are also generally absent in rural communities where cost of living needs to be raised.  Thus, there is need to make these cooperatives more inclusive by extending them to village groupings. Well-functioning consumer cooperatives are important in increasing access to large consumer markets as well as incomes for members.
