Being on urban cooperative society, it was organized among heterogeneous populations, individuals who do not know each other. Because of this, the cooperative had been designed based on the principles of shareholding; material security for loans granted and limited usability. In 1867, the German government passed a cooperative societies act to recognize and protect these societies. In no time, this urban credit cooperative society spread all over Europe and to even America and Canada
On the other hand, fredrish Wilhelm Raiffeisen who was a solider, railway builder and wine merchant and also a devoted Christian started among the rural dwellers, credit cooperative society. The rural farmers lacked sufficient fund to pay cash for farm equipment and household necessities. In northern Germany, Raiffeisen organized what he called ‘loan societies’. This society was not based on charity but on self help which is hinged on regular thrift saving not on shareholding. Members of that society saved weekly. Obodoechi (2006)
