BAMBANG, Nueva Vizcaya , March 16 (PIA)– Senator Cynthia Villar recently urged villagers here to help each other in improving their cooperative.


“Give what is due for your cooperative so that everyone can benefit. In this way, we can improve our lives for the better,” she said before members of the St. Catherines Parish Multi-Purpose Cooperative (SCPMPC) at the municipal auditorium in this town.


Villar who came here over the weekend was  the guest of honor and speaker for the 49th General Assembly of the SCPMC.


The senator was accompanied by Governor Carlos Padilla, Vice Governor Lambert Galima,Jr. and former Governor Ruth Padilla.


She also praised the SCPMC for having been chosen by the Villar Foundation  as one of the winners for its SIPAG Award, an honor given for successful cooperatives in the country.


Villar said their foundation has already recognized 80 cooperatives in the country  in four years time.


“There are 20 cooperatives awarded each year because of their excellent track record and services that have an impact on poverty alleviation,” she said.


Aside from the award, Villar said they publish the awarded cooperatives and refer them to financial institutions and the Department of Agriculture (DA) to promote their good practices to possibly attract public and private assistance.


She also encouraged cooperatives to avail of the research and development services of State Colleges and Universities (SUCs) where P2 billion has been allotted including loan from the Land Bank of the Philippines (LBP) amounting to P1million, among others.


Villar also pledged recycled plastic chairs for the local government unit which will be given to various public schools. (ALM/BME/PIA 2-Nueva Vizcaya)
