The Cooperative Union of Marikina City, Marikina City Cooperative Development Council and the Cooperative Development Authority–National Capital Region (CDA-NCR) conducted a Business Forum and Koop Kapatid Orientation last May 6, 2023. It was held at the 3rd Floor BCC Function Hall, Barangka, Marikina City with 37 participants from 20 cooperatives. Ms. Prima Sarah Parangue, Senior Cooperatives Development Specialist for Cooperative Project and Development Assistance Section (CPDAS), discussed the Koop Kapatid Program. A program wherein some cooperatives have already shown their support and interest. On the other hand, Mr. Wilbert H. Sy, Regional Sales Manager of CLIMBS Life and General Insurance Cooperative, discussed the opportunities on how cooperatives can earn income while insuring their members at the same time. A fruitful event which served as a platform for cooperatives to help each other.
