Women’s agricultural cooperatives were founded in 2015 in Derik, Girkê Legê, Tirbespiyê and Amude. The cooperatives are managed by assemblies and administrations, and they operate on land leased from the economic board of the Autonomous Administration every year. After the harvest, both the land rent is paid and the products sold. Girkê Legê cooperatives were established in the town centre. In 2023, wheat and barley were planted in the 8 villages. From planting to irrigation, from harvesting to sending to relevant institutions, all the work is carried out by the female members of the cooperatives. Hundreds of women are doing these jobs in the 6 cooperatives. The protection of the land is carried out by the internal security forces.
