Alfonso Larrea Barroso was a member of the SCENIUS cooperative of accountants and professionals in Havana, Cuba before the government shut it down last year, frustrating co-op economic growth in the country.
He recently wrote an op-ed for the Havana Times outlining the new co-op “Rule of Three,” how Cuban cooperators are navigating the it, and how the rule might impact cooperatives in the region.
NCBA CLUSA has exchanged with Cuban cooperatives as part of the U.S.-Cuba Cooperative Working Group since 2015. Read more about that work in our most recent report, “Working Cooperatively: Understanding Cooperatives in Cuba and Opportunities for U.S.-Cuba Engagement.”
