The San Rafael Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries Multi-Purpose cooperative based in Murcia town, Negros Occidental bested 12 others from other regions and bagged a trophy and P100,000 in cash prize.

Starting as a group of land reform beneficiaries, SRARBMPC, is one of the cooperatives under the Self Reliant Organizations Project of Comprehensive Agrarian Reform program and the Department of Labor and Employment, Director Ponciano Ligutom of DOLE Region 6, said.

Ligutom also said that SRARBMPC’s business excellence which includes its income and production, and adequate human, financial and technical resources were the key factors in citing the cooperative. SRARBMPC, now with 60 members, posted a productivity rate of 34.69 percent last year.

Jeffrey Apurado, chairman of the committee on education of the cooperative, said their prize will be used for expansion to further benefit their members.
