The head of the Cooperative Development Authority (CDA) said Central Luzon’s cooperatives remain strong despite the pandemic.

“Cooperatives themselves are still remaining strong, giving all the assistance needed by their members, and responding to the call of the times,” CDA Regional Director Cristina Villamil said in a Philippine Information Agency report.

Villamil noted in the report that cooperatives had “even adapted to the new normal” by shifting their business online, and transacting through social media platforms.

Also, the agency strengthened its programs for empowering micro and small cooperatives struggling in business transactions, she said.

CDA Senior Cooperative Development Specialist Raul Encarnacion said they launched the Online Handholding Program Services for Micro and Small Cooperatives where they provide technical assistance by answering inquiries, providing training, and mentoring micro cooperatives.

“Medium and large cooperatives can survive and adapt to the pandemic, and they are the ones who helped the members and communities during the pandemic,” he said.
