Promouvoir les entreprises coopératives féminines en Thaïlande

Kit de formation

Une publication du bureau régional de la FAO pour l'Asie et le Pacifique

Publication RAP 2004/01


Le secteur des coopératives est bien implanté en Thaïlande et de nombreux groupes coopératifs féminins y ont été mis en place, suite à la crise économique de la fin des années 1990, mais peu d'entre eux fonctionnent encore aujourd'hui. Pour se relancer, ces groupes coopératifs féminins ont essentiellement besoin d'un soutien en termes de formation et de renforcement des capacités.

The FAO Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific has developed this training kit to assist rural women in becoming individual or group entrepreneurs and managers of cooperative businesses. Rural women's cooperative groups in Thailand cover a wide range of businesses. Some of their training needs are the same, such as those relating to business and accounting concepts. Other training needs, especially those related to technology, differ across sectors.

Several of these needs can be met by training members of the women's groups. As a long-term strategy, training is better than providing services because it enables the women to take charge of their own businesses.

The key elements to this training kit are:

  • Attention to attitudinal change: instilling an entrepreneurial attitude in both women's group members as well as facilitators.
  • Attention to gender relations: a lack of gender- disaggregated data on cooperatives, particularly on membership, management and leadership complicates this issue. In general, both women and men are reluctant to challenge the positions of men in top leadership positions. A note and a handout offer guidance on steering discussion on the subject.
  • Attention to the Thai cultural context: takes into account the ways in which Thai women and trainers learn best.
  • Focus on four rural enterprise sectors: sectors have been chosen from those with a greater concentration of women's groups. A regional balance has also been attempted in the selection of the sectors.
