DR. GARIBALDI O. LEONARDO, DBA, ON “ A GREAT TESTIMONY TO A COOP HELPING A COOP"

      Dr. Garibaldi O. Leonardo, DBA, SDCC Chairman was invited by Dr. Oscar Tayko of Cavite Farmers Feedmilling and Marketing Cooperative (CAFFMACO), Silang, Cavite as keynote speaker during its “Special Membership Meeting” on October 30, 2014.

      Dr. Leonardo's message was about members' active support in the coop through increased financial contributions or investments and patronizing the products and services of the organization. His speech in sharing knowledge of SDCC's experience in Cooperative Development was truly impressive and timely for CAFFMACO. The audience was receptive and absorptive.

      Dr. Oscar Tayko was more convinced that SDCC is no ordinary coop but a model for all coops. Dr. Perla Rizalina M. Tayko, Ph.D., wife of Dr. Oscar Tayko was very much impressed for the comprehensive, profound and succinct presentation. She's taking her hat off for what SDCC has achieved.

     Congratulations Dr. Garibaldi Leonardo for making SDCC proud!!! Maraming Salamat Po!
