The idea of co-operation is something much more than merely an efficient & economic way of doing things. It is economic, it is fair, it equalizes & prevents disparities from growing. But it is something even deeper than that. It is really a way of life.
Vaikunthbhai Mehta Co-operative Thinker

They deal with the common people, speak the local language, they have flexible processes, they have accessibility, they have a friendliness and therefore they are best suited for the objectives of financial inclusion”.
