FAQs
WHAT IS A COOPERATIVE SOCIETY?
Cooperative societies are mutual organizations owned and controlled by their members for the
purpose of helping them realize their common objectives.
Work place cooperatives typically generate funds through regular contributions of their members
for the purpose of collective investments and meeting their personal financial intervention
needs.
Even though the cooperative operates within the sponsoring organization, is a statutorily
registered and separate legal entity with its own rights and responsibilities and is totally separate
from its sponsoring organization. In this case therefore, the cooperative is distinct from ipNX
Nigeria Ltd. and will be managed by its members.
