These projects have social significance, since they cover farmers from the most remote regions of the country. They are also more educational in nature and include many activities to mobilize people.
As a result of the project activities, 20 managers from 8 cooperatives visited intensive training, which included not only theoretical part, but also practical tasks. A particular focus was directed to the distinctive features of the cooperative management, since the owners of the organization are members of the cooperative, at the same time they are customers: suppliers of products and purchasers of the material.
The training program included topics such as planning; internal organization; motivation; control; coordination.
At every stage, participants were preparing an action plan for their cooperative or were describing the management process in it. Also, each co-operative made a business plan and budget before the end of 2017.
