Samba Co-operative Limited is a buy-aid organization that was founded by consumers in 1938 with the purpose to negotiate benefits for members. Any consumer can apply for membership to the Co-operative. Each approved member is issued with a Samba card, with a credit limit approved based on their affordability. Each November the profit of the Co-operative is paid out or distributed to the members as a percentage of bonus on their purchases made during the year.
