Women earn their own money in women’s cooperatives. But there is more to it than that. We explain how cooperatives can lift women out of poverty.
Women’s cooperatives offer women in countries such as Africa, Asia or South America the opportunity to free themselves from poverty or other difficult life situations. By uniting, they can better pursue their goals and support each other.
The cooperative is something like one cooperative, in which, for example, farmers join together. The women in the cooperative are also the owners and determine themselves for what they want to use the profits they have made together.
