Asides from contributing to societal growth, one other purpose a cooperative society has is to make a profit. Cooperative societies go through a lot of planning, financing, and preparation to start-up. Therefore, they expect to get good and encouraging returns. However, before thinking of profits as a cooperative executive, you have to ask yourself one simple question,
“Why is my cooperative important?”
This question balls down to what value your cooperative society adds to society and the economy. You have to know why people will see the need to want to work with your cooperative society. Your answers can revolve around any of the following;
- Directly answering community needs.
- Promoting collaborative entrepreneurship and economic growth.
- Providing small loans to their members.
- Helping members produce marketable products.
Whatever your answer is, it should help decipher what value you offer to your members and in turn the society at large.
To enable you to make 90% more from your cooperative society, you need to understand your role as the manager or board of directors. This will help you find out how it can be utilised in your quest for more profit.
