Are cooperatives able to reduce poverty? Which concrete examples that exist for effective, profit-driven businesses that improve the situation for the poor? Which are the success factors and obstacles behind these? What kind of recommendations can be given for Development cooperation to support cooperatives that reduce poverty? These questions were made in a study commissioned by the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland with the final aim to provide policy recommendations on how Finland could promote inclusive people-centred businesses for poverty reduction by supporting the cooperative business model in Tanzania. One specific objective was to find concrete examples of genuine, business-driven cooperatives comprising poor members that are profit-driven and are improving the situation for those members. The study also identified the particular features that characterize such cooperatives (Sumelius et al., 2014).
