9 Co-operatives Board GREAT Women Project

MANDALUYONG CITY – Nine cooperatives from Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao have joined the GREAT WOMEN Project 2 to empower their women members through entrepreneurship training and assistance.

GREAT Women Project 2 stands for Gender Responsive Economic Actions for the Transformation of Women, and is a partnership between the NATCCO Network and the Philippine Commission on Women.  

The nine cooperatives are ADTEMPCO in Abra, Ligas Kooperatiba ng Bayan sa Pagpapaunlad in Bulacan, Gubat St. Anthony Cooperative in Sorsogon, Lamac MPC (Cebu) Abuyog St. Francis Xavier Credit Cooperative (Leyte), Buenavista Development Cooperative (Guimaras), Panabo MPC (Panabo City), Paglaum MPC in Misamis Occidental, and Gata Daku MPC (Misamis Oriental).

The GREAT Women Project 2, under the PCW-NATCCO partnership aims to empower women co-op members by training them on how to run and grow their business.

Prior to the signing of the Memorandum of Agreement, PCW President Luvie Villanueva explained why they are partnering with the private sector: “No single organization can help women-led SMEs.”

Other partners are government agencies such as the Dept. of Science and Technology, Dept. of Trade and Industry (DTI) and the Dept. of Agriculture, since many of the enterprises the project will focus on are agricultural and food processing in nature.
For the marketing side, echosi Foundation is also a partner.  The NATCCO Network lends networking assistance through its nationwide co-op membership.

Six national priority industry clusters have been chosen: coffee, cocoa, coco coir, processed food, health and wellness, processed fruits and nuts, homestyle décor and wearables like gifts, houseware, décor, textile, fashion accessories, and furniture.

Enterprises chosen in the partnership are registered enterprises that are women-owned and women-managed, committed to grow, have growth potential (as identified above) and with maximum capitalization of P3 Million.

The Project is funded by the Canadian Government.
