Etymology: from cooperate.
A cooperative (also known as co-operative, co-op, or coop) is "an autonomous association of persons united voluntarily to meet their common economic, social and cultural needs and aspirations through a jointly owned and democratically-controlled enterprise". Cooperatives are democratically controlled by their members, with each member having one vote in electing the board of directors.
A cooperative is a type of organization or business that is owned and run jointly by its members, who share in the profits or benefits. It operates on principles of democracy, voluntary participation, and equal voting rights, regardless of the amount of capital each member has contributed. A cooperative can exist in various sectors like agriculture, retail, healthcare, etc. Its primary objective is to meet the economic, social and cultural needs of its members rather than to earn profits.
