Voice 72

Voice is ICMIF’s quarterly magazine, containing stories and news embracing the sector as well as in-depth interviews with chief executives.

From this issue:

For a cooperative such as Sancor Seguros, Sunchales is in any case a very appropriate place to be. The town has recently been declared the national Cooperative Capital of Argentina, and the spirit of cooperation pervades all aspects of the town’s economic and cultural life. The story began as far back as 1929, only three years after Argentina first had a national cooperative law in place, when thirty-two dairy farmers in Sunchales came together to establish their own milk cooperative. It was the usual story of hard work and struggle to ensure that they received a fair reward from buyers for their labours: together, they realised, they were much stronger than they had been individually. Extract from ‘The spirit of cooperation'
