Claim: The reasons for the general failure of co-operatives in developing countries is the lack of congruency between the functions carried out by these co-operatives and the needs and aspirations of the small farmers. The co-operative structure in most developing countries normally envelops distributing, disbursing and collecting organisations. In cases of cooperative failure, the secondary and apex organisations had neither the capability nor a will or sense of responsibility for developing primary level organisations of small farmers, which was the main objective.
