The League’s Success Story
As an organization, PFCCO-Central Luzon shall institute a competitive advantage by being viable and sustainable cooperative federation responsive to the economic and educational needs of all its primary member-cooperatives.
Guided by the vision, PFCCO-Central Luzon persuades to enhance the socio-economic needs of its member-coops through financial and non-financial services in partnership with government and non-government organizations.
To achieve the League’s vision and mission, the following goals were identified for accomplishment: to develop cooperative leaders through continuous trainings and education, to build the League’s financial base on capability, and to enhance good relationship among cooperative through interaction.
The above-mentioned VMG was gradually achieved, through the years of operation, by adhering to our tag line “Your B.E.S.T. Partner” and by executing it though our B.E.S.T. Strategy… (B for Business Enterprise; E for Education, Seminars and Trainings; S for Social Advocacy/Community Participation; and T for Technical Assistance/Transfer of Technology)
The success of PFCCO Central Luzon has been achieved after introducing various products and services benefitting its member primaries, through partnership and linkages.
Since credit facilities were not fully utilized/patronized by members, the League decided to focus its service on trainings and seminars, that’s why the League decided to apply/seek for accreditation as CDA Accredited Training Provider. And for almost four (4) years of being an Accredited Training Provider, numerous seminars and trainings were conducted, both CDA mandated and specialized trainings, to all cooperative officers, management and staff. These various trainings from different places contribute a lot to the great increase in League’s membership.
Insurance products and services, both life and non-life, were also introduced. The new business endeavor was truly patronized by some member-coops because of its earning capacity, both for the League and primary member-coops. Thus, the League generated enough fund to sustain its operation, resulting to creation of employment through hiring of additional employee for the League.
The League also serves as marketing arm of member-coops and other coop-related organizations by way of linkaging. Their products and services were promoted/marketed from coop to other coops, from coop to other places, from coop to another organizations, etc… Some products being promoted and marketed by the League are gowns and barongs from Bagong Barrio MPC/Disenyo Pandi, made to order t-shirts of Our Lady of Penafrancia MPC, rice harvest (rice trading) from Tupad Pangarap MPC, cooperative books and the like of other coops and federations.
Recently, the League ventured into collection service through partnership with HVS Collection Agency. And some member-coops already patronize this new service, with positive result coming from them. Minimal income was generated from this service.
Because of satisfactory income generated from the above products and services, various community programs were being delivered to different areas of Central Luzon and in other areas outside the region, through our Operation: Sagip-Tulong ng Kilusang Kooperatiba Project.
The League, through its member-coops collected effort and contributions, was able to donate huge amount of money and various items/in kind to Kapuso Foundation (Channel 7) and ABS CBN Foundation (Channel 2), aside from the donations directly given/distributed to affected areas of different calamities that hit the country.
Annual activity for the members, the League Family Fun Day, was also being conducted to promote camaraderie and familiarization among member-coops/officers from various provinces of Central Luzon. Truly for fun and enjoyment activity that member-coops/officer is looking forward every year. Recognitions and awarding were also conducted, as well as presentation of new members. Numerous gifts of their choice were given to all member-coops patronizing the insurance products and services of the League, base on their annual remittances.
Another beauty of these diversified products and services, particularly insurance business, the League is now not fully dependent only with CETF remittances of member-primaries, since income/commission from insurance products and services has the biggest share from the League’s annual source of income.
With all of the above accomplishments, various awards and recognitions were received by PFCCO-Central Luzon on provincial, regional, and national level… as Best Performing Cooperative Federation!!!
ALL THE BEST FOR PFCCO-CENTRAL LUZON!!!
