Cielito L. Garrido, MBA – the new Development Educator!!


 “A cooperative starts with education, expands thru education, is controlled through education, and its success depends largely on education.” This often-quoted phrase has served as the key to San Dionisio Credit Cooperative’s success, with these now-famous lines having been handed down from the cooperative’s founding fathers.

This is what spurred our Chief Executive Officer, Ms. Cielito L. Garrido, MBA, to participate in the 15th Asian Credit Union Development Education Workshop in Bangkok, Thailand last June 14 – 19, 2013. The Development Education Workshop aims to keep participants abreast of the current development issues in credit unions, improve their appreciation of different cultural values, and network as well as exchange ideas with credit union leaders and professionals outside the country. Ms. Cielito L. Garrido, MBA, successfully completed the said seminar / workshop and acquired the BADGE of DEVELOPMENT EDUCATOR and the Credit Union Development Program Diploma. To our beloved Chief Executive Officer and the new Development Educator, CONGRATULATIONS and more power!!
