Welcome to the Provincial Cooperatives Office!

Like any other governments in the Philippines, Aurora recognizes the importance of cooperatives in the lives of common Filipino people. The advent of the 1991 Local Government Code has given birth to the Provincial Cooperatives in faithful obedience to the constitutional mandate of fostering the creation and growth of cooperatives as a practical vehicle for promoting self-reliance and harnessing people power towards the attainment of economic development and social justice.

Cooperative as a way of life has sharpened the faces of the men and women beset with the drudgeries of poverty in the countryside. By joining the cooperatives, people expose themselves to the light of understanding cooperative principles and methods, thus far become empowered by the system and processes. Together, they break the shackles that perpetuate the evidence-based state of being poor.

For Aurora, I strongly believe that there is no other way than the cooperative way that offers an alternative economic model where every Juan dela Cruz carves out into social and financial inclusion, develops his entrepreneurial behavior and leadership, and charts his own destiny as a free individual in our present society.

Think “Cooperatives for Development.” Join now. Let us cooperate today and tomorrow.
