What is a cooperative?

A cooperative is a unique form of business known as user-owned, user-benefited, and user-controlled. Benefits from the cooperative are returned to the members based on their use of the cooperative during the year. A cooperative is democratically controlled by its members through a one-member, one-vote policy. Members own the cooperative through their financial investment in the business.
