Abstract

The study intends to assess “Organization of Rwanda Cooperatives towards Successful Management: Evidence from Rice Cooperatives of Bugesera District. The choice of the researcher’s topic was inspired by the constant affirmation by various government administrators in Rwanda through their speeches that there is mismanagement of cooperatives’ resources in the country. This has in turn led to the slow growth of cooperatives against the projected growth. Thus, the researcher wanted to assess if there is significant relationship between Cooperatives’ Organization and Successful Management. Cooperatives Organization were assessed through the perception of cooperative administrators in terms of: organization in finance; organization in the use of physical facilities; organization in production; organization in personnel; organization in purchasing and selling and then organization in administration and control. Successful Management was assessed in terms of Cooperative efficiency & effectiveness and sustainability & growth. From the population of the study which was composed of 90 members of administrative committees of 9 rice cooperatives of Bugesera District, the researcher selected conveniently and purposely 3 respondents (president, vice-president and one counselor) in each cooperative and a total of 27 responded to the questionnaires. Interview and observation were also used. The research design was descriptive and correlation. For data analysis, Mean, standard deviation and Spearman correlation were computed; analyzed and interpreted. Findings showed that many standards assessed are moderately perceived but there is a significant relationship between “Rwanda Cooperatives Organization and Successful Management” and there is a significant relationship between Rwanda Cooperatives Organization when standards are considered separately and successful Management. The researcher has given different recommendations for strengthening the success of Rice Cooperatives of Bugesera District.
