Résumé partiel
The economy of Afghanistan basically revolves around its agricultural base. However, agricultural practices are traditional, rudimentary and often unacceptable, but modern practices are being introduced, accepted and adopted at a reasonable pace and on a significant scale. It is estimated that agriculture provides employment and livelihood for about 80% of the total population, while 75% of the total population lives in rural areas. In recent years, the rural development facilitating agencies realized that providing services to the rural farmers in group approach is effective and bring future sustainability. Therefore, the concerns of working with existing or forming new producer organizations have become a very popular subject in rural development. The most common formal structure of producer organizations in Afghanistan are cooperative and associations which distinguished by a formal constitution and the legislation that applies. While, the informal POs which work together in a form of group that is similar to a cooperative or associations, but is not registered and smaller then a cooperative and association.

In total five male and five female producer groups were investigated which made 60 respondents (30 male and 30 female).
