Uruguay


Our activities in Uruguay 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.

About the Project


In Uruguay, the project’s approach is based on two lines of work: a) strengthening the management of cooperatives, b) and strengthening the training area of the Institute for Cooperative Development (IDC). To this end, the network of managers in Uruguay is accompanied by international speakers, and meetings are held between Uruguayan managers and their peers in the region, promoting South-South dialogue among the countries of the region. The project also provides training and education programmes for managers and leaders. The training programmes focus mainly on strategic and financial planning for cooperatives, in order to improve their management and enhance their financial competitiveness.

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.

Sustainable Development Goals

Partners


IDC

The Institute for Cooperative Development, IDC, is a non-profit civil association created in 2005 by a group of Uruguayan Savings and Credit Cooperatives with the support of DGRV.

It arises from the need of the cooperatives to receive a set of professional services, of non-financial nature, which are fundamental to achieve good management, efficiency, and an adequate quality of attention to their members.
