The existence of cooperatives in the Philippines is truly a great contributor for the country’s continuous progress and prosperous future. If we will take a closer look at thousands of cooperatives existing in the Philippines, we can say hooray to the accomplishments of many, however, there is this one old cooperative that holds a unique glow.
