- The Farmers Cooperative Development center goal is to organize farmers into groups, supporting them to establish farmers' cooperatives or join an existing cooperatives.
The functions of the farmers cooperatives will include;
- A savings scheme.
- Input and service loan scheme.
- Buying of big equipment
- Marketing together.
- Learning together.
The coorperative member will be skilled and given a loan of inputs and services at the start of the season or production cycle or as when needed. All the members will harvest and market together. Those who have loans, the loan will be deducted from the sales at an agreed interval depending on the production cycles of the farms. A small percentage agreed by the cooperative will be saved from the sales of products of each small farmer.
