CDA Reactivates INTOFAWAR
By Robert Dixon
MONROVIA, March 3 (LINA) - The Deputy Registrar General of the Cooperative Development Agency (CDA), Mr. Erick Vincent, says the Agency has reactivated the Intofawor Cooperative in Foya District, Lofa County.
He said Intofawor has also been transformed into a cooperative, after being dormant since the Liberian civil conflict.
Vincent said Intofawor, which is one of the oldest community-based associations in Lofa County, was transformed into a cooperative through the initiative of Vice President Joseph N. Boakai.
Speaking in an interview with the Liberia News Agency Monday at his Office on the Somalia Drive, Vincent said the dormancy of Intofawar, which was the leading community-based association in Lofa County, prompted the Vice President to instruct the CDA to reactivate it to its pre-war status.
Meanwhile, the CDA will shortly conduct training in collaboration with four organizations, which will lead to the community–based associations being transformed into cooperatives.
The CDA was established in April 1981, to facilitate the formation of farm and community-based associations throughout Liberia into formal cooperatives, so that their resources can be pooled into manageable and viable enterprises.
