Lack of Motive

The members do not work with full zeal and devotion as there is no profit motive.

Limited Capital

The amount of capital that a cooperative society can raise from its member is very limited because the membership is generally confined to a particular section of the society.

Problems in Management

A cooperative generally offers low scales of remuneration to the staff employed. That’s why management of a cooperative may not be particularly competent.

Lack of Commitment

The success of a cooperative based on the loyalty of its members, something that is neither assured nor can be enforced.

Lack of Co-Operation

The co-operative societies are established with the objective of mutual co-operation. But it is generally seen that there is a lot of friction between the members because of personality differences, ego clash, etc. The selfish attitude of members may sometimes be an end to the society.
