ABOUT COOPERA

Coopera (ko-pair-ah) means "cooperate" in Spanish.

Coopera is a full-service multicultural analytics and consulting firm. Our dedicated multicultural and multilingual personnel work closely with credit union clients across the U.S. to assess their needs and create growth strategies designed to increase multicultural membership, revenue growth and loan volume. Our solutions also support other organizations in need of cultural change and a deeper understanding of underrepresented market segments poised for growth and opportunity.

We are an organization dedicated to helping others find meaningful ways to be inclusive in their business. Our roots in the credit union movement allow us to understand the cooperative mission of credit unions and to help them stay true to those philosophies while expanding and moving into new markets.

Founded in 2006 by the late Hispanic community activist Warren Morrow, Coopera is owned by Affiliates Management Company (AMC), and is headquartered in West Des Moines, Iowa.

 

Coopera previously focused efforts primarily on expansion into Hispanic markets; however, as the world evolves so do we and we have expanded our analytics services to include many of the growing multicultural segments in the U.S. including Black/African American, White/Anglo, Asian/Pacific Islander, Native American and two or more races.
