Dr. Luis Carrillo: Bigay Pugay Awardee 2018

Dr. Luis Carrillo sought wisdom from the written divine revelation, fascinated with numbers, and believed cooperation is the key to attain better quality of life for humanity. 
He obtained a Diploma in Pastoral Theology from International Grace Bible Institute with high honors in 1963, and Bachelor of Mathematics (Cum Laude) from Mindanao State University in 1967.  He submitted his Masters and Doctoral theses with the Ateneo de Manila University in 1977 and 1989.
As Math Professor at the Mindanao State University, he served as chartered Director of MSU-IIT Cooperative in 1978, and later became General Manager in 1990.  This was when co-op General Managers were volunteers!  Under Dr. Carrillo’s watch, the co-op’s Assets rose from P3.41 M to P86 M in just 5 years.
He served as Director for eleven years of the Mindanao Confederation of Cooperatives (MASS-SPECC).  As Chairperson of the Board in 1994-97, he campaigned for deposits throughout Mindanao to put up the building of MASS-SPECC.
Dr. Carrillo was for five years a Director of the National Confederation of Cooperatives (NATCCO).   In 1996-97 and 2000-2001 he served as NATCCO Chair.  In 2000, the NATCCO Network adopted the Strategic Plan for 2000 - 2004 with three goals: a financial network, enterprise development, and network integration as a two-tier federation.  
As early as 2000, Dr. Carrillo worked for the institutionalization of the Youth Congress and the Gender Congress to widen participation in governance in the NATCCO Network.
He was also Director of the Philippine Cooperative Center (PCC) for two years.
Dr. Carrillo believes that R.A. 7941, the Party-list Law, is an opportunity for co-ops to be actively involved in government.  From 2003-2004, he was National Coordinator of the COOP-NATCCO Party-list and sat as member of the Senate Technical Working Group for the passage of the Cooperative Code of 2008.  
He served as member of the Standing Committee in the International Cooperative Alliance–Asia and the Pacific in 2000-2001.  He was invited to speak at the ICA Forum in Kuala Lumpur on Cooperatives in Government, where he presented the participation of the Philippine Co-op Sector thru the Party-list System.  The other speaker was Professor Dr. Hans Munkner who spoke on political neutrality of cooperatives.  The participation of co-ops in the Philippine Congress got the interest of many of the forum participants from all over the world. 
In 2009, Dr. Carrillo helped establish the NATCCO Mutual Benefit Association, which is the NATCCO Network’s insurance arm.  After just nine years operation, NATCCO MBAI has so far issued 33,273 policies worth P10.27 Billion, and insures the lives of 77,000 borrowers whose loans amount to P1.97 Billion.
