Now the role of Ibero University in Puebla, Mexico -- innovation and tech for social economy development, not as oriented to social transformation as the Chantier, but impressive scale...

if its like the UK equivalent, its not a requirement that the customers are co-op members, but the funeral co-ops generally have a good reputation for providing affordable services (it costs quite a bit to die in a capitalist world!).
The UK Co-op does give members special rates for funerals.
As for transfer of shares, I think it depends on local law and the rules of the co-op involved but they are usually treated like anything else in the estate.
Hi USA, here is my college. (Ciencias - UNAM) It has a good worldwide ranking and it has a $0.25 MXN/year tuition and a $0.25 MXN/year admin fee to study there.
