Project Objectives

Strengthening cooperative structures in agriculture, services and finance and thereby enable the participation of economically disadvantaged groups in the economic process


DGRV follows a multi-level approach: The individual cooperative – i.e. at the micro-level – needs a consistent business orientation, adequate internal organization and well-trained managers and staff. In addition, the cooperative must be part of an integrated subsidiarity-based network at the meso-level in order for it to benefit from services provided by specialized central enterprises and associations, such as for training and auditing. At the macro-level, the government must create an adequate legal and regulatory framework for cooperative activities. Fields of activity in Kyrgyz Republic are: - Promotion of agricultural commodity cooperatives - Support to marketing activities - Training for staff and governance members - Consultancy to agricultural cooperatives, federations, for the set-up of business an investment plans and at local level for the set-up of a system of cooperative credit banks, audit, training
