Agrarian reform cooperatives are those being assisted by DAR, and whose members are mostly agrarian reform beneficiaries.

Provincial Agrarian Reform Officer Engr. Eric San Luis earlier pointed out that that the cooperatives need to undergo all the trainings in accordance with Republic Act 9520 or the Philippine Cooperative Code of 2008,  and in order for them get Certificate of Good Standing.

“There are other accredited training providers for cooperatives but charging fees unlike us, which we are providing them for free,” said San Luis. •Butch Gunio
