SAINT VINCENT.

Annual Report of the Acting Registrar of Co-operative Societies
for the year ended 31st December, 1961.





INTRODUCTION

St. Vincent Island, one of the Windward group, is a volcanic island
lying twenty-one miles south-west of St. Lucia, one hundred miles west of
Barbados and one hundred and seventy miles north of Trinidad. South are
the Grenadines, a chain of smaller islands stretching towards Grenada ninety
miles away. Of these, Bequia (nine miles from St. Vincent), Mustique,
Mayreau, Canouan, Union Island and some smaller ones are dependencies of
St. Vincent, and with it form the territory of that name.

2. With an area of approximately 150 square miles including, the
Grenadines, the island is divided from north to south by a mountain chain
which creates numerous valleys down which flow many rivers. The greatest
length of the island is eighteen miles, and its greatest breadth is eleven miles.
Mount Soufriere, in the northern portion of the island, claims the highest
peak-4,084 ft. and last erupted in 1902.

3. Agriculture is the main industry of the island and the major crops
are Bananas, Sugar-Cane, Coconuts, Arrowroot and Cotton.

4. The Capital, Kingstown, lies in a south-westerly direction and its
population at the last census in 1960 was 16,132. Georgetown, in the north,
is the second town of importance and lies in the sugar cane area. Its popula-
tion at the last census was 6,756. Other towns are Layou, Barrouallie,
Chateaubelair and Calliaqua and Port Elizabeth in Bequia.

PART I-GENERAL PROGRESS

5. The Co-operative Division continues to be a section of the Department
of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries; the Registrar of Co-operative
Societies is the responsible person for the direction and control of the division.

6. The first registration under the Co-operative Societies Ordinance
took place in 1954 which was the same year in which the Co-operative
Societies Ordinance was passed. The Registrar of Co-operative Societies
then was also Public Relations and Local Government Officer. It was not,
however, until June, 1958 that a Registrar of Co-operative Societies and
Co-operative Officer was appointed and the Co-operative Division established.

7. The Division continued its programme of carrying out Co-operative
Education and Training among members of organized societies and the public
in general with a view to disseminating Co-operative knowledge throughout
the territory.

8. No new societies were registered during the year, but those that are
in operation continued to show improvement in the general management of
their affairs. Shares have increased and much use was made of the societies.
One society, the Troumaca Co-operative Credit Union Limited, whose member-
ship was very small, went into voluntary liquidation due partly to its failure
to increase its Share Capital and partly to a lack of interest on the part of its
officers and members.

The following table shows the types of societies in existence at 91st
December, 1961 with their membership, share capital and deposits, and
reserve funds.

Staff:

9. Mr. V. P. Smart, Registrar of Co-operative Societies and Co-operative
Officer, went on Vacation Leave on 31st July. Mr. T. M. Saunders, Co-opera-
tive Field Officer was appointed to act Registrar of Co-operative Societies.
At the end of October Mr. Carl Stephens, Assistant Co-operative Field Officer,
went on 226 days vacation leave prior to his resigning from the service.
Mr. 0. O. Lewis, Clas ii I ierk, wa- ..,ppoinLed to awt ior him. On Lhe 15th
April, Miss Patricia DeFreitas joined the clerical staff of the Division. At
the end of the year the staff was as follows:-

1 Registrar of Co-operative Societies and Co-operative
Officer

2 Co-operative Field Officers

2 Clerks-Class II.

coat:

10. The cost of the Division for 1961 was $17,279.73 made up as follows:-

Personal Emoluments Other Charges

$14,447.73 $2,832.00

Audit and Supervision Fund:

11. The Audit of the Accounts of all Societies in respect of their financial
year 1961 was completed prior to the writing of this report. The amount
collected for this fund was $15.00.
PART IL-THRIFT AND CREDIT

12. The number of Thrift and Credit Societies at the end of the year was
7. These societies continue to meet the needs of their members by granting
them loans for provident and productive purposes. They also organize
cultural activities in the community for the benefit of all concerned.

13. The total membership at the end of the year was 994 a decrease of 69.
This decrease was due partly to the number of members who left the societies
to seek their fortune abroad and partly to the voluntary liquidation of the
Troumaca Co-operative Credit Union Limited. Shares, however, increased
from $26,961.24 to $31,157.35, Deposits stood at $1,383.08. Loans outstanding
at the beginning of the year was $22,662.58 while the amount granted during
the year was $23,831.33. At 31st December, loans outstanding amounted
to $27,077.92. The following table shows the financial position of Thrift and
Credit Societies (Credit Unions) in respect of the years 1957 to 1961.

PART III-THRIFT
14. There are two unregistreed societies which are engaged solely in
Thrift. One functions in a Primary School in Kingstown and collects weekly
savings from the pupils. When the pupil is about to leave school his total
savings are returned to him. This society has savings amounting to $126.00.
The other society operates as a Thrift Project in a 4-H Club in one of the
Grenadine Islands-Canouan. Its main purpose is to teach the members the
value of thrift. This society has savings totalling $90.00

PART IV-CENTRAL FINANCE
15. There is no Co-operative Central Bank in St. Vincent. Government,
however, finances registered Fishermen's Co-operative Societies as well as
registered Arrowroot Co-operative Societies. At 31st December loans owing
to Government by these societies amounted to $8,780.00.

PART V-CONSUMER SOCIETIES
16. There is no consumer society in St. Vincent.

PART VI-PRODUCERS, MARKETING AND PROCESSING SOCIETIES

17. There is no Producers' society in St. Vincent. There are, however,
two registered Marketing and Processing societies. One of them, the Rose
Hall Arrowroot Co-operative Society Limited, located in the North Leeward
District of the island, processed 60,770 lbs. of arrowroot valued at approxi-
mately $12,154.00, and 314 lbs. of cassava starch of the approximate value of
$61.40. This society made loans to its members for the purpose of enabling
them to reap their arrowroot. Loans are to be repaid as soon as the arrow-
root is marketed.
18. The other society, the Biabou Arrowroot Co-operative Society
Limited, which is located in the South Windward area was organized chiefly
to operate the Biabou Factory. The factory has not yet been handed over to
the society to operate; it is still being managed by Government. The Society,
however, makes small loans to members to assist them in reaping their arrow-
root. The members of this society are still hopeful that they may one day
have the management of this factory.

PART VII-OTHER SOCIETIES
Oraftmen's Societies:

19. There is no Co-operative Society for craftmen. There are a number
6f handicraft groups organized by the Education Department and super-
vised by the Home Economics Instructress. These groups make a variety of
useful articles from the screw pine, sisal, coconut straw, lavender grass and
whist. Some of the articles are sold by the groups, while the greater part is
sold at the Education Department to tourists and others.

Women's Societies:

20. There is no society whose membership is confined to women only;
membership in all the societies is open to both men and women.














Fishermen's Societies:

21. There are four Fishermen's societies. One at Barrouallie, a small
country town, on the Leeward Coast, and three in the Grenadines-Bequia,
Canouan, and Union Island.
22. Tire members of the Barrouallie Society are engaged principally in
fishing for the black fish and sperm whale from which large amount of oil is
obtained. There is however, no local market for these oils since the Govern-
ment Cotton Ginnery was destroyed by fire during the latter part of 1959.
23. For .the proper extraction of oil from the black fish and the sperm
whale, Government has begun construction of a factory for that purpose.
Work is progressing satisfactorily and it is hoped that before long the factory
would be ready to commence operation.
24.. Of the other societies, the one in Bequiia operates a small fishermen's
shop from which the members and others obtain fishing gears. The opening
of the shop was made possible by a loan of $5,000.00 from Government.
25. The members of the Canouan and Uniou Island Society are engaged
in general fishing. Some of the catch is sold to the Government Fish Depot
at Canouan from where it is transported for sale in Kingstown. Much,
however, is carried to the neighboring grenadine island of Carriacou (a
dependency of Grenada) and sold.
26. Government grants loans to these societies for the purpose of pur-
chasing fishing gears, boats, and marine engines. A Fisheries Officer who' is
attached to the Agriculture Department assists these societies in the processing
of loan applications for marine engines. The following table gives the position
of the fishermen's societies:-

1961 4 137 1,043.20 1,720.78 326.75 1,875.12 1,780.00


PART VIII-CO-OPERATIVE EDUCATION AND PUBLICITY

27. Much work in Co-operative Education and Publicity was carried
out by the Division during the year under review. The Registrar gave a
series of radio broadcasts which were carried over the local station as well as
over the Windward Islands Broadcasting Station located in Grenada.

28. These talks were very informative and helped in no small way to
educate the general public in the principles and practice of Co-operation.

29. Other means employed in disseminating Co-operative Educatiqn
were training sessions, discussion groups, lectures, film shows and the press.

Staff Conferences:

30. A staff conference was held in January by the Registrar of Co-opera-
Stive Societies. Some of the subjects dealt with were the History and Pattern
of Co-operation and Co-operative Principles, Types of Co-operative Organiza-
tions, Function of the Co-operative Division, Duties of Registrar, Audit and
Accounts and Programming of work.

Visits:
31. The division was visited by Mr. W. 0. Abrams, Co-operative Educa-
tion Officer attached to the Caribbean Organization in Puerto Rico, from the













12th to the 26th May, and again from the 12th to the 17th November. During
his visit in May, he carried out a series of Co-operative training sessions among
members of the Fishermen's Societies at Bequia, Canouan, Union Island and
Barrouallie; he also met members of the St. Vincent Credit Union Education
Council and held discussions with them.

32. On his second visit in November, he held training sessions with the
Board of Directors, Loans Committee and Secretaries of Credit Unions.

33. Another visitor was Mr. R. H. Harper, I.L.O. Expert on Co-operatives,
who spent two days on a familiarisation tour.

International Co-operation Day and International Credit Union Day:

34. International Co-operation Day and International Credit Union Day
celebrations took place in July and in October respectively. International
Co-operation Day was celebrated at three centres-Biabou, Belair and
Barrouallie. At each of these centres, addresses were delivered by prominent
persons in the community and much was done not only to encourage the mem-
bers of the societies, but to spread the idea of co-operation.

35. On International Credit Union Day, the Credit Union Educational
Council arranged meetings and held film-shows at Layou, Barrouallie,
Carriere, Belair, Calliaqua and Kingstown. At Kingstown, opportunity was
taken to present to Mr. Frederick Phills, President of the Credit Union Educa-
tional Council, a Certificate of Merit for outstanding work in the Credit Union
Field.

PART IX-MISCELLANEOUS

Audit and Supervision:

36. The audit of all registered societies have been completed and were
performed by the Division. The Societies were inspected and supervised
during the year and as a result proper records and accounts were maintained.
For the proper working of these societies it is necessary that they be visited
often.

Arbitrations:

37. No arbitration was taken during the year under review.

Registrations and Liquidations:

38. There was no registration. One society, the Troumaca Co-operative
Credit Union Limited, went into voluntary liquidation.

International Conferences and Seminars:

39. The Acting Registrar of Co-operative Societies attended the Interna-
tional Credit Union Conference held in Trinidad from the 18th to the 24th
September. At this conference much was gained from the discussions of
problems in the field of Organisation and Management of Credit Unions.

British Council/Co-operative Union Scholarship:

40. St. Vincent was again one of the territories from which applications
were invited for the award of a scholarship to study at the Co-operative
College, Loughborough, England. Two applicants were sent in, but the
candidates were not successful.

Conclusion:

41. The Co-operative Movement being a movement operated by voluntary
leaders cannot be expected to make any spectacular progress in a short time.
Although the movement is organised to improve the economic position of the
members and to help them to use their influence effectively in guiding their
economic affairs in ways which they consider desirable, yet success will













depend in the long run on the extent to which the members believe that these
desirable ends can be achieved and on the rate at which they are prepared to
bring them about.

42. Acknowledgement is made of the assistance received from the Co-
6perative Union of Canada for "Co-op. Commentary", the West Indian Con-
federation of Credit Societies, for "W.I.C.S. Views", the International Labour
Organisation for their "I.L.O. News", the Staff of the Co-operative Division and
other persons or groups who helped in any way during the year.
