Access and information on how co-operatives can raise capital has always been a hurdle for the growth of the sector. To help counter this, the BCCM has launched a new community investment handbook to introduce communities and existing co-operatives to methods of financing.
The handbook will give communities and
co-ops information to increase their financial literacy and familiarity with co-operative financing methods under the Co-operatives National Law (CNL) and provide some guidance for communities wishing to start up co-operatives that are suited to community investment. The Handbook is available on Get Mutual.
