COOPCAFAM is a Cooperative which is based on the philosophy of solidarity and with a solid administrative and financial model; stimulates savings, offers credit alternatives and other complementary services to contribute to the well-being and quality of life of the associate and his family group.
The Cooperative of Employees of Cafam COOPCAFAM, was born in October 1976, with 490 founding associates, beginning a work that has framed the cooperative values, through the development of activities aimed at improving the quality of life of the associates.
The cooperative movement, cooperativism or the cooperative movement is the social movement or doctrine that defines the cooperation of its members in the economic and social range, as a means to ensure that producers and consumers, integrated in voluntary associations called cooperatives, obtain a greater benefit for meeting your needs. It is represented on a global scale through the International Cooperative Alliance.
The Solidarity Fund is fed by a variable amount of economic resources of a cooperative social nature, based on principles of mutuality and equitable benefit, destined to attend to situations of domestic calamity such as the occurrence of verifiable events or fortuitous cases of the Associate or his family group , that seriously affect the economic stability or the assets of the basic family nucleus.
The Education fund was created to address the educational needs of our associates and their families. The resources come from a variable amount that corresponds to 20% of the surpluses generated annually by the cooperative in compliance with Decree 2880 of 2004
Coopcafam turns these resources to ICETEX so that through the Coopcafam Educational Agreement, subsidies are granted in basic, secondary, higher education -Technical, technological and professional- for the associates of strata 1, 2 and 3 and their family groups.
