000011083 520__ $$aCooperative group actions are undergoing a resurgence in popularity in close concert with an increasing awareness of the problems of rural poverty and a belief that group actions can serve as a partial solution to those problems.  There are several elements necessary for the economic success of a cooperative, of which the absence of any one may preclude economic success and thus greatly diminish or eliminate the usefulness of cooperatives as an anti-poverty tool.

This paper examines capital resources as one prerequisite for economic success by reviewing capital needs and capital sources.  The availability of capital as well as the comparative advantages and disadvantages of the various sources are examined as they apply to limited resource cooperatives.  From this discussion general guidelines are drawn for the use of cooperative managers and members engaged in acquiring capital resources and as food for thought for those individuals and agencies involved in promulgating or supporting limited resource cooperative enterprise.
