The network for Nigeria’s thousands of co‑operative businesses, Co‑operatives NG works to promote, develop and unite member-owned businesses worth more than 100 billion Naira to the Nigeria economy.
Co‑operatives NG is a network of thousands of businesses across the country that are owned and run by their members, whether customers, employees or local residents.
Our mission is to grow the Co-operative Economy and together we work to promote, develop and unite co-operatives across all sectors, from major high street retailers and large agricultural businesses to community owned pubs and credit unions.
Co-operatives give people a say over the places where they live, work and shop. Together they point to a new economy over which people have ownership and influence.
What do we do together?
Promote co-operatives: Lead lobbying work and campaigns to promote co-operatives to decision-makers and the wider public, in order to create a level playing field for the start-up and growth of co-operative businesses.
Develop co-operatives: Deliver specialist governance, secretariat and legal advice services to help members run their co-operative businesses, from simple online factsheets and guidance through to tailored support and training.
Unite co-operatives: Organise high profile national events for co-operatives and facilitate networks and workshops to enable co-operatives to connect, learn and do business with one another.
Owned and run by its co-operative members, Co-operatives NG connects thousands of businesses that are giving people more control over the things that matter to them.
