>> Thursday, October 26, 2017

CITY OF TABUK, Kalinga – The Tabuk City Cooperative Office will represent the Cordillera region in the 2017 National Gawad Parangal Award.
Elenita Latugat of Tabuk CCO said the office was cited for its Cooperative Assistance for Rural Enhancement (CARE) Program wherein the city government, in partnership with the Tabuk City Cooperative Development Council contributed in the growth and development of grassroot cooperatives here.
Under the CARE program, the city-LGU sponsors capability enhancement trainings and workshops and provides financial assistance for capital build-up. This year, the city government had released P2 million in soft loans (no interest) as capital support to starting cooperatives.
At present, there are at least 87 people’s cooperatives in the city being assisted by the CCO.
The CCO earlier bagged National Gawad Parangal Award in 2015.  It was also given recognition as ‘Best Performing Cooperative Office’ in the recent National Cooperative Tripartite Conference in Iloilo City.
Meanwhile, Mayor Ferdinand B. Tubban vowed to consider the cooperative movement as priority program of his administration seeing how people’s lives are changed through the benefits and services of cooperatives.

In Tabuk, we see the cooperatives as effective partner of government in bringing economic reforms down to the grassroots, Tubban said.  -- PIA  Kalinga
