In 2005, we constituted Jade Grupo Cooperativo Mexicano as an evolution of the previous process. It is a space in which life can be shared and resources can be optimized.

During the 80’s we focused into local development by the construction of productive cooperatives as well as popular education processes and the solution of human rights’ conflicts in Jalisco and Oaxaca.

Near the 90’s, we constituted institutions and productive, commercial and financial social companies. All of them from social, and indigenous organizations. We also founded fair trade institutions.

During the beginning of this century we established more high level cooperative enterprises, we improved qualification and explored new schemes of joint.

In 2005, we constituted Jade Grupo Cooperativo Mexicano as an evolution of the previous process. It is a space in which life can be shared and resources can be optimized. A space in which to become more competitive and improve the social impact inside the organizational model so that we grow solidly in the next years.

We recognize and value ourselves within a history where the manifestations of life of different communities of the country and the world look for solidarity, collective property of the economy, equal distribution of wealth, valuation of cultural diversity, sustainable ecology, communitarian organization and active and democratic participation in the decision making procedure. We have built cooperative companies of social & common economy, as well as projects of local and global development that give value to economy as a part of development but together with culture, communitarian sense, ecology and social and political sense. This resolution of alternatives is a clear testimony that what we dream of and are building is a world for everyone. Our companies keep a permanent commitment of competitiveness to penetrate in markets, obtaining in that way, the detonation of the capacities and potentialities of the people, as well as being creative and innovative.

Our companies keep a permanent commitment of competitiveness to penetrate in markets, obtaining in that way, the detonation of the capacities and potentialities of the people, as well as being creative and innovative.

II. Identity We look for the generation of a greater collective wealth , thanks to the support between the cooperative companies of social & common economy, the reinvestment of utilities for the creation of new companies, the use of capital, market and technology as means and not as goals, as well as the stability of the companies and the jobs they generate, by betting for the persons and not for a temporal adventure or for the individual benefits. We stay independent of politics and of public and private government influences to keep us free in the construction of alternatives along with the poor people. Our instances of association are recognized by their seriousness, solidity, proactive attitude and commitment in the construction of alternatives. We generate collective wealth , obtaining a suitable distribution of it. This wealth is generated along with the people who are less valued by the society, mainly in remote zones and in the most difficult times, where and when nobody wants to invest. In that way we keep the cultural diversity as a fundamental patrimony to detonate development.

II. Identity The social & common economy has as a priority, the value and the dignity of the community. We keep a specific ethic way of thinking and living: to share, to cooperate and to include. It is, therefore, an economy of people in community and not of capitals. For that reason, the companies of social & common economy are of collective property . It is an economy that is born from the poorest people , as all the important proposals of change in the world to be lived by all. In the social & common economy, we bet for an ecologically sustainable development , taking care of health and environment for the present and future generations.

II. Identity The globalization enriches humanity in many fields. The problem is that a global movement that reduces geographic distances, also increases social distances resulting in concentration of wealth in just a few hands. Social & common economy contributes to the democratization of the economy and to the social cohesion. Social & common economy must be understood as a social force to fight for an alternative model of development in all environments and levels, from the local to the global, for the construction of a world that truly is for everyone, allowing a life with justice, dignity, solidarity and democracy.
