Hello to you!
Cooperatives are organizations in which members use their time and resources to obtain a common profit. Then, this profit is divided among all the members of the organization.
For example, villages can be cooperatives!
Also, the Church influenced the appearance of cooperatives! In fact, by advocating mutual aid values and the development of rural areas, the Church encouraged the emergence of cooperatives in Quebec, notably by creating the Catholic Farmers Union in 1924.
I hope this answers your question! Don't hesitate if you have any other questions, it will be a real pleasure for me to help you :D
