Sharjah Cooperative Society
The Sharjah cooperation Society was founded in March 1977 by ministerial decree (no. 16, 1977) as the first of cooperative societies in the United Arab Emirates. This came under the directives of His Highness Dr. Sheikh Sultan bin Muhammad Al-Qassimi Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah to spread cooperative services in the emirate, and to raise the standard of living of its inhabitants socially and economically by adopting cooperative principles.
If you followed the cooperative progress in Sharjah you would find a remarkable balance, for Sharjah Cooperative Society has combined development with big strides in its economy: It has been able to achieve big profit; it has been committed to its shareholders; it has continued to develop its different branches and build new sites in distinct architectural styles; and it possesses large financial resources that support its financial center.
SCS has achieved a remarkable increase in activating its social role in cooperative work by communicating with the different segments and institutions of society. It has always spared part of its profits to support social activities, and has done its part in developing its goals to serve society.
