4. Applying the resilience framework to savings and credit co-operatives


In this section, I would like you to undertake the same process of reviewing the case studies using the resilience framework. This should take you about an hour and a half, as previously.

However, in this case, I would like you to reflect on whether there are substantive differences between producer co-operatives and savings and credit co-operatives: do they present different issues for resilience?

The two co-operative unions are: the Malawian Union of Savings and Credit Co-operatives (MUSCCO) and the Community Saving and Investment Promotion (COMSIP) co-operative union.

I will first present my own analysis of their resilience, as previously, and will come back to the question of similarities and differences at the end.
