Our history

The history of Coopealianza arises from August 22, 1971, when a group of 1.175 associates, with a great vision, managed to merge two small cooperatives that were located in San Isidro de El General, Coopehosani and Coopezel. This union marked what would be the fate of Coopealianza, the company that registers the largest number of mergers and takeovers in our country.

In 1971, Coopealianza stood out for offering its associates savings and credit products that were complemented by agricultural supplies and household items, with the limitation that located its only point of service in the San Isidro district of El General.

In 1972, Coopealianza's services expanded, as a new office was located in the Pejibaye district of Pérez Zeledón, by merging Coopeji. During these first years, Coopealianza began to consolidate in the canton of Pérez Zeledón by offering quality services and products. Within this consolidation process, by 1978 it merged with Coopeplatanares located in the Platanares district.

The need to grow and consolidate continued, that is how in 1993 it merged with Coopegolfo, which allows it to position itself as the financial entity of the Southern Zone.

The new millennium brought new strategic alliances that allowed other cooperatives to join the process. In 2000, he did it with Coopecolón from the Ciudad Colón community. Four years later it merges with Coopecorrales, a cooperative in the canton of Poás, in the province of Alajuela.

Not neglecting growth and openness to change, in 2004 the Nicoya Teachers' Cooperative, Coopmani, decided to join Coopealianza. In 2005, Coopenaranjo is part of this great alliance and in 2013, Coopealianza coverage reaches the canton of Greece through the merger by absorption with Coopetacares.

Continuing with its growth process in 2015, it successfully concluded the merger process with Coopeacosta, a cooperative located in the canton of Acosta. Through this merger, the motto was consolidated: Border to Border!

Coopealianza is currently a cooperative with a national presence. It is the result of a project under construction, where there are no heroes or heroines, but the product of 52 years of efforts, dedication, work and stories of many.

The successes achieved are not the result of chance, but of the combination of different elements, such as strategic planning, teamwork, a clear vision of growth and clear objectives aimed at achieving goals.
