Baguio cooperatives hold first confab
by Julie G. Fianza / PIO

Representatives of cooperatives in Baguio converged for the first time at the City Hall last week to thresh out concerns affecting their organizations’ operation.

Spearheaded by the Office of Councilor Arthur Allad-iw as chair of the committee on employment, livelihood, cooperatives and persons with disabilities, the summit was coordinated with the Special Services Division, Cooperative Development Authority, and Bureau of Internal Revenue.

Officers of small, micro, medium, large and barangay cooperatives agreed on problems commonly encountered and admitted their need for assistance from each other and other agencies.

Linkages and liaison officers are needed especially in transactions with government agencies, thus a cooperatives desk was suggested in government agencies, along with legal assistance. Financial assistance up to P20 million could be availed of from banks, with stringent compliance of requirements, it was known.  

The cooperative officers also requested for semi-annual trainors’ training, subsidized trainings for updates and information, as well as provision of consultants on organizational management.

For starting barangay cooperatives, lectures on procedures were requested, as well as financial assistance to cover start-up capital. There is also a need to untangle complicated documents for submission, to which the CDA personnel promised assistance.

In turn, government agencies promised constant monitoring and inspection of the cooperatives. Accreditation may be also accorded to deserving cooperatives.

In the same forum, it also turned out that in some barangays have more than one cooperative.

CDA Director Franco Bawang urged the cooperators to work for the improvement of cooperatives.

Mayor Mauricio Domogan in his message, expressed confidence that with feasible and doable aims, and experts sharing knowledge on how to run an organization, proper accounting and transparency; cooperatives along with its members would prosper. Cooperatives should take advantage of government programs to assist them, the mayor said. One such assistance is the Credit Security Fund which amounts up to P20M, and was availed by one cooperative in the city after fulfilling all requirements, Domogan added.   

Allad-iw said the summit’s output would serve as basis for crafting of legislative measures for cooperatives and livelihood efforts in the city.

The summit is anchored on the theme, “Cooperatives and beyond.”
