概要 Using a case of a dairy cooperative in Bhutan, this study investigates how social capital enhances individual household income and community development in rural areas. It also examines the influence of cooperatives in social capital formation. Firstly, this study finds that social capital facilitates households that are resource constrained by working together to reduce costs through economies of scale, enhancing information accessibility, building confidence and strengthening teamwork. It fosters not only an improvement in the livelihoods of cooperative members, but also provides a positive influence for non-members and the community as a whole. Secondly, this study reveals that cooperatives influence formation of three forms of bonding, bridging and linking social capitals.
