NCBA blogs on CUNAverse about Mozambique co-ops
MADISON, Wis. (8/9/10)--Andrew McLeod, communications specialist at the National Cooperative Business Association (NCBA), is guest-blogging on CUNAverse about co-operatives in Mozambique. McLeod will travel to Mozambique and look at NCBA’s work in the country, which is carried out through the Cooperative League of the United States of America (CLUSA) International program. The program has helped develop co-ps in more than 50 countries, with a concentration in Africa. Mozambique has nine projects. The nation is one of the world’s poorest countries and has a population of 23 million. The projects range from helping to launch farmer associations and training farmers to increase production, to creating export opportunities through fair trade and food quality testing. The program also has improved the overall framework for co-ops by mentoring a national co-op association, the Mozambican Association for the Promotion of Modern Cooperatives, McLeod noted in his first blog. McLeod’s blogs also will be the foundation for an article in the next issue of the Cooperative Business Journal, set for release in September. CUNAverse is the official blog of the Credit Union National Association.
