Baao, Camarines Sur – The Local Government Unit of Baao adheres to its commitment in promoting and supporting the development of cooperatives in the municipality. It recognizes the vital role of cooperatives as a vehicle in fostering economic growth and uplifting the lives of its members, particularly the Baaoeños. On April 3, 2024, during the MCDC meeting, Honorable Mayor Jeffrey S. Besinio, announced that the LGU will be providing a Php300,000.00 financial assistance to each and every operating micro and small cooperative in the municipality. Previously, it had awarded one of the cooperatives an astounding Php500,000.00, the Federation of Baao Women (FBW) Multi-Purpose Cooperative which significantly contributed to the development of the said all-women cooperative.
