The activities in Bolivia are part of the CoopSur Project.
The long-term impact of the DGRV CoopSur project is to improve the economic and social participation of large population groups, especially micro and small entrepreneurs, craftsmen and farmers with limited or no access to markets, who may be current or potential partners of existing cooperatives.
In Bolivia, the project supports the professionalization of the leaders of credit and savings cooperatives open to public, which are supervised by ASFI “Autoridad de Supervisión del Sistema Financiera”. The training program is semi-face-to-face and focuses on the interpretation of the financial and management indicators of the programme “Alerta Temprana”.
Another objective is the implementation of the Social Balance methodology, a tool to assess the social responsibility of cooperatives.
The CoopSur project is funded by the Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development of Germany (BMZ) and is currently running until the end of 2021.
ATC is a private non-profit organization that promotes the strengthening, integration and training of members. DGRV collaborates with ATC in the context of a virtual classroom that offers semipresence courses in interpretation of the porgramme indicators “Alerta Temprana” alongside offering the social balance tool.
