By Aaron Humes: The farming community of Bomba, Belize District, now has a fully established cooperative society to manage its agricultural production.

On Friday the Department of Cooperatives formally registered the Bomba United Farmers’ Co-operative Society Limited. This new co-operative has transitioned from a self-regulated farmers’ ad hoc group to a formal enterprise under the oversight of the department. This gives it access to auditing, conflict resolution services, and entrepreneurial development programs, among others.

The co-operative consists of 21 members: 13 men and eight women. It operates from Bomba Village, Belize District, and engages in vegetable and fruit production, including onion, bell pepper, tomato, lettuce, watermelon, cantaloupe, milk, and cheese.

During the ceremony, remarks were made by Gareth Murillo, registrar of co-operatives; Leonel Requeña, national coordinator, Small Grants Program, Global Environment Facility, United Nations Development Program (UNDP); and Reynaldo Orellana, chairman of the co-operative.
