(2020) delved into the role of cooperatives in combating poverty among calamansi farming households in Oriental Mindoro, Philippines. The study utilized the Multidimensional Poverty Index (MPI) and Endogenous Switching Regression (ESR), to analyze the impact of cooperative membership on poverty reduction. Here’s what they discovered: The MPI estimates revealed that farmer-members experience multidimensional poverty at a rate of only 1%, while non-members face a significantly higher rate of 11%. This suggests that joining a cooperative has a profound effect on reducing poverty among calamansi farmers. But that’s not all! The study’s ESR model showed that cooperative membership leads to a substantial poverty reduction of 4.44 points when measured using the multidimensional deprivation index. Imagine the positive impact this can have on the lives of farmers and their families! In fact, in a fascinating counterfactual scenario, non-member farmers could have reduced the deprivation index by approximately 19.14 if they had opted to be cooperative members. This showcases the transformative potential of cooperative participation in uplifting livelihoods and fighting poverty.Source: Jimenez, C. D., Mina, C. S., & Catelo, S. P. (2020).
