“Go forth and preach the good news” are the words that we hear from the priest after the mass, which remind us to Share the Good News and our knowledge to all our brothers and sisters.

Our very own servants in the cooperative movement, SDCC Chairperson, Dr. Garibaldi O. Leonardo, PhD, and Chief Executive Officer, Ms. Cielito L. Garrido, MBA, were the resource speakers in a Symposium on Financial Literacy and Financial Management held at the Fr. Cornelius Tonus Gymnasium, Saint Mary’s University, Bayombong, Nueva Vizcaya last February 27, 2012.
