At least nine regional cooperatives in the province of Agusan del Sur have each received financial help from the provincial government in the amount of PHP300,000.
The Sustainable Cooperative Operation Performance Enhancement (SCOPE) program of the Provincial Agriculture Office of Agusan del Sur was the source of the financing, according to a statement released by the Provincial Information Office of Agusan del Sur (PIO) on Tuesday (Jan. 24, 2023).
The SCOPE initiative, it was added, intends to support the province’s cooperatives’ economic business operations. On Monday, Governor Santiago Cane Jr. oversaw the aid distribution.
While the other beneficiaries came from the municipalities of Esperanza, Prosperidad, Santa Josefa, Veruela, San Francisco, Loreto, and Bayugan City, two of the recipient cooperatives are from the municipality of Trento.
