1.0 Introduction

Definition of cooperative societies are voluntary from business organizations in which individuals in a particular trade come together to foster/develop a smooth relationship aimed or protecting the interest of their members.

Ogujifor (2001) defined cooperative society as an association of persons or group of individuals who voluntarily joined together through business organization to achieve their common capital sharing in the risk and benefits and member participate actively or democratically.

Cooperative association and movement in the world has been seen as a continued or situational event or activity and an invention of necessity. It was born out of the local and economic condition and situation in Europe. The industrial revolution in Europe in the late eighteenth and all through the nineteenth century culminated in the formation of cooperative movement.

The rise and expansion of the modern cooperatives movement has its roots in the far reaching economic, social and political changes which took place in Europe in the eighteenth and nineteenth century especially the industrial revolution and the liberation of the peasantry from the former feudalistic system.

1.1 Background Of The Study
