The Menno Colony Cooperative, Chaco, Paraguay, was founded in 1936 as a mutual aid organization, hence paid no dividends as most cooperatives do. It advanced necessary short-term consumer credit, and used its profits for the enlargement of facilities, and a smaller part to support the hospital and other welfare activities. The cooperative was under the general direction and control of the Chortitzer-Komitee, which was the general incorporated or registered organization of the Menno Colony and which had general responsibility for the economic aspects of Menno Colony life.
