Traditionally, agricultural co-operatives have shown a very acute financial need that has not been satisfied by credit entities, especially after their diversification process during the present decade. Therefore, these co-operatives have been forced to find by themselves alternative financial sources through the creation of credit sections and the stablishment of co-operation agreements with agricultural credit banks and credit co-operatives. Moreover, during the last years, credit sections are undergoing an important process of change so an empirical analysis of the strategic behaviour of agricultural co-operatives in their new socioeconomic context is needed. This article identifies the different entrepreneurial aspects that characterize agricultural co-operatives with credit sections in the Valencian Community.
