What is a cooperative ?
A cooperative is a social enterprise managed collectively and as horizontally as possible. As mentioned by the International Cooperative Alliance, the specificity of cooperatives relies in their democratic control. In fact, each member of the coop has a share in the business and can participate in its democratic life, especially in general meetings where the main directions are decided.
A solidarity cooperative includes at least 2 types of members, 3 in our case: worker members, user members and support members.
