Nueva Ecija town cooperative draws praises, gains support

gitnang luzonLUPAO, NUEVA ECIJA – A farmers’ cooperative here that was set up initially to keep villagers from the influence of communist-led New People’s Army (NPA) received a big boost after it “manifested great success and commendable fiscal management” that invited overflowing support from various government and non-government agencies.

The Parista Barangay Defense System Multi-Purpose Cooperative (PBDS-MPC) that was formed in 2006 through the collaboration of the Philippine Army’s 7th Infantry Division (7ID), Department of Agrarian Reform, Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry-Nueva Ecija Chapter (PCCI-NE) and the local government, among others, is engaged in propagation of mushroom.

Joyce Ramones, provincial agrarian reform officer 2 , said the DAR has provided the cooperative some P500,000 package that included a mushroom processing facility in Barangay Parista in this town.

“A dynamic and vibrant cooperative does not need to ask for help. Instead, those providing support and projects will be the one that will look for it,” Ramones said, adding that such quality was found at PBDS-MPC.

Roberto Gaid, PBDS-MPC chair, said part of the amount will be used in training members and their families in manufacturing noodle, the latest of their mushroom products.

The cooperative is already known in making sisig, ice cream and chicharon from mushroom.
Gaid said the fund from DAR was the latest assistance they received from assisting agencies.

The DTI has also provided them with equipment under the shared service facility (SSF) program and the local government.

The Philippine Carabao Center (PCC) has also given them 25 head of carabaos for dairy requirements.
Even the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) is issuing equipment under the Bottom-Up Budgeting Program, he added.

Having manifested sound financial management, PBDS-MPC has earned a P4-million credit line from the Land Bank of the Philippines (LBP) where farming members can draw loan to finance their agriculture inputs.

This, Gaid said, has freed farmers from usurers who used to charge large interest rates, usually a cavan of rice for a PhP1,000 loan. (PNA)•
