MICRO CO-OPS RECEIVE FINANCIAL ASSITANCE FROM CDA. Four micro cooperatives in the province, which were severely affected by Typhoon Odette, receive financial assistance from the Cooperative Development Authority (CDA), under the Special Assistance for Recovery and Alleviation Program.
Governor Bong Lacson, together with CDA Asec. Myrla Paradillo, spearheaded the turn over of the assistance to the beneficiaries, in a program held at Brgy. 9 Covered Court in Kabankalan City, today.
The recipients who received P100,000 each were Gil Montilla Agrarian Reform Cooperative, San Jose Villa Multi-Purpose Cooperative, and Sitio Flora Agrarian Reform Cooperative; while Pulupandan Transport Sector Consumers Cooperative received P50,000. The CDA Program aims to help the micro coops recover and rise amidst the challenge of climate change.
Gov. Lacson thanked CDA for the committed effort in the promotion of the sustained growth and full development of the cooperatives. “Today’s distribution of financial assistance will further our goal to strengthen the capacities of our people, as an empowered people is the basic element of development,” he added.
Also present in the activity were 6th District Board Member Jeffrey Tubola, Provincial Administrator, Atty. Rayfrando Diaz, CDA Region VI Director, Dr. Nora Patron, among others.
