Ten (10) cooperatives with products, coming from the province of Lanao del Norte, joined in the briefing orientation; hands-on training; and registration of cooperatives to the Co-opBiz online marketing platform held at the Provincial Cooperative Office (PCO), Tubod, Lanao del Norte on May 12, 2023.
The Co-opBiz is an online marketing platform which exclusively hosts duly registered cooperatives as merchants and vendors that will cater to online visitors, may they be individual or other types of entities both within and outside the Philippines.
The activity was initiated through a collaborative effort and partnership of the Local Government Unit (LGU) of Lanao del Norte, with the support of Governor Imelda “Angging” Quibranza- Dimaporo thru the Provincial Cooperative Office of Lanao del Norte, headed by Ms. Minda V. Regis, Provincial Cooperative Officer, and the Cooperative Development Authority Region 10. The head of the Cooperative Projects and Development Section (CPDAS), Ms. Edilberta M. Balaba and the ICT officer, Ms. Ma. Isadel M. Atrigenio teamed-up for the presentation and briefing of the CoopBiz.
At the end of the day, the cooperatives have registered with the CoopBiz, and pending acceptance and confirmation of the Head Office in-charge of the CoopBiz, soon their products can be viewed online.
The activity was a success because of the overwhelming support of our partners, the local government unit of Lanao del Norte thru the PCO, and the cooperatives with products.
The CDA is very thankful that we were allowed the time for the promotion of our web-based system online marketing platform.
