Fundamentals of Cooperative
by Hershe Magana
When we study about cooperatives, the first thing we should know is its origin and principles. Fundamentals of Cooperative answer the questions how it all started and what is it really all about. It provides information from the basic structure up to the most important part of the cooperative.
The Fundamentals of Cooperative seminar introduced those influential persons behind the continuous success of a cooperative. Two of those persons are: Freidrich Wilhelm Raiffaisen, the Father of Credit Union Movement; and Robert Owen, the Father of Cooperative Movement.
It also discussed the basic principles of a cooperative which are the Open and Voluntary Membership, Democratic Member Control, Member’s Economic Participation, Autonomy and Independence, Education, Training and Information, Cooperation among Cooperatives, and Concern for Community. These principles illustrate the equality given to all members and the social responsibility for the sustainable development of the community.
San Jose Koop (San Jose Del Monte Credit and Savings Cooperative) is one of the most awarded cooperatives; we are honoured and glad to be part of its mission, vision, and values pertaining to the excellence in serving people.
In this seminar, I have learned that as part of the growing Cooperative, it is not only about the profit that we earned, but also about the concern for our community. We will always look at the needs and satisfaction of our community. In return, we will also gain benefits from them.
It is not just simply a work for yourself or work for others, it is more on commitment between you and your community.
