The Cooperativa de ahorro y crédito de acción popular (CAAP) is a cooperative umbrella organisation that unites 15 cooperatives and approximately 120,000 members. The CAAP was founded in 2011 and is supervised by the Superintendencia de Economía Popular y Solidaria in Ecuador.
Its main objective is to strengthen the member cooperatives, among others with cooperative & financial education, training, workshops, tools and financing.
In recent years, BRS has mainly provided ad hoc support by organising a number of webinars for all its members (including an internal control and audit webinar, six webinars on human resources in cooperation with ADG, a webinar on young entrepreneurs, etc.). BRS will continue its cooperation with the CAAP in the coming years.
