CDA JOINS THE CELEBRATION AND OBSERVANCE OF INTERNATIONAL DAY OF COOPERATIVES AND NATIONAL DISASTER RESILIENCE MONTH
“It is necessary to protect our members and assets especially in times of crises. As leaders in the cooperative, our responsibility to our members is to be prepared for disaster, for disruption. Cooperatives need to be available to their members when they are needed most - whether for emergency loans, to withdraw their savings, to rebuild their agricultural lands, or just to have access to food in times of emergencies,” said Mercedes Castillo, Cooperative Development Authority (CDA) Administrator.
