According to DAR-Surigao Sur information officer Myra Yu, the said training aims to give additional knowledge and enhance capabilities of the cooperative members and officers who are in-charge in the preparation of financial statement and other related transactions.

The training will be divided into two batches to be held separately in Tandag City and the municipality of Barobo. Expected participants are the Treasurers, Bookkeepers and Audit Inventory Committee of the cooperatives. Speakers are from VICTO National Cooperative Federation and Development Center in Cebu City.

Accordingly, this is also one of the requirements during the conduct of Agrarian Reform Community (ARC) Level of Development Assessment (ALDA) in evaluating the maturity and stability of the cooperatives.
