                 Silver City Food Co-op Certificate of Equity
                     
                   Equity is how co-ops capitalize the business. An equity share in the Silver City                         Food Co-op is $20 and is good for one year of member benefits at which time the         benefits expire and another share needs to be purchased. The actual dollar amount of your equity is cumulative and tracked. You may request your equity be returned if you  terminate your membership; the amount refunded, if any, is determined by the Board of Directors minus any outstanding amounts you owe the Co-p and processing fees. [Bylaws VIII] 
Equity is always a risk.
