Indupalma was mand as a plantation during its first 30 years. Labor cooperatives emerged as a response to a financial and governance crisis that led Indupalma to the brink of at the beginning of the 1990s. Workers and peasants formed associations to create autonomous business units (such as cooperatives, microenterprises, and associations), which sold their seices to Indupalma. The company invested a great deal of resources in technical and administrative training and in human resource development for associates. The performance of workers d, and the financial viability of the company was regained. Today, cooperatives face multiple social and economic challenges; the role of Indupalma in facing these challenges (inteention, paternalism, empowerment, or indifference) will put to the test the solidity and true impact of the development process.
