CBMIFOs are owned, managed and controlled by the community. Individuals join the CBMIFO as a shareholder and receive voting rights.
An individual member must purchase a minimum share in their CBMIFO of 5,000 riel (approx $USD 1.25). The regular member can attend AGMs and have their say in how the CBMIFO is managed. Members can be elected to positions of responsibility and governance, including the Board of Directors.
The share capital is also an investment and provides long term returns to the member.
There are currently more than 50,000 individual members across the CBMIFO network.
