Subsistence Miners receive PMES Training from PCDO and PG-ENRO

Provincial Cooperative Development Office

January 12, 2020

 

 

December 12, 2019. The Provincial Cooperative Development Office (PCDO) and the Provincial Government – Environment and Natural Resources Office (PG-ENRO) headed by Mr. Edwin Bautista and Mr. Marlon Tobias, respectively, joined their efforts to form a cooperative for subsistence miners from various barangays in the town of Magdalena.

With the perennial problem on illegal quarrying practices and lack of sustainable livelihood opportunities for the marginalized residents of the barangays near the Balanac River area, forming a cooperative for these people was found to be the best solution.

Mr. Noly Balboa and Mr. Bonifacio Pascual facilitated the Pre-Membership Education Seminar (PMES) and provided lecture for the participants about cooperative, its origin, basic principles, organizational structure and the steps and procedures on how to register the cooperative with the Cooperative Development Authority.

Further, the participants were taught the importance of forming a cooperative for them to have a legal personality and be eligible for the support and assistance from both the local and national governments in sustaining their livelihood.
