Wanyama, International Labour Office Download: Working Paper No. 10 - Surviving liberalization : the cooperative movement in Kenya pdf - 1.4 MB It is over a decade since the liberalization of the cooperative movement in Kenya, which sought to create commercially autonomous member-based cooperatives that would be democratically and professionally managed; self-controlled; and self-reliant business ventures. However, since then very little is documented and communicated about the unfolding status of the movement. (...)

The well-adapted cooperatives are subsequently recording better performance than they did in the previous era.
