Principle 6: Cooperation Among Cooperatives

Several credit unions have put the idea of cooperatives helping other cooperatives into direct action by helping finance start-up food cooperatives--reportedly one of the fastest-growing cooperative sectors in the U.S.  The story at http://www.cuna.org/newsnow/12/system022112-5.html highlights how credit unions in Bedford, IN, Harrisonburg, VA, and New Orleans, LA, have provided loans to startup co-ops which has helped enhance the economic viability of those communities.
