The National Association of Training Centers for Cooperatives (NATCCO) was formed by cooperators who believed that the task of co-op development lay primarily in the hands of the private sector.
Toril Community Cooperative
After a series of false starts, a group of some thirty men of the Santo Rosario Parish, Toril, Davao City, started attending orientation lecture on Credit Union given by social actionists from the Sta. Ana Parish. Foremost among the social actionists were Mr. Hardenio Hofilenia, Atty. Fernando Alag, Mr. Epifanio Datoy, Mr. Pablo Naong and Mr. Eustaquio Ancheta, the CCC of Davao City. These lectures were conducted sometime in November and December, 1968.
These culminated on December 29, 1968 when, under the supervision and guidance of the City CCO, Mr. Ancheta , these men decided to form the Toril Community Cooperative Credit Union, Inc. and elected their officers, in conformity with the provisions of Republic Act No. 2023. The first elected officers were: Fernando Pantig, President; Pedro Concepcion, Vice President; Constantino Rabara, Secretary; Jose Ferriols, Treasurer/Manager; and Noe Albay, Director
On February 17, 1969, the registration papers recognizing the Toril Cooperative Credit Union, Inc. with Registration No. 002171, were received, approved by the Director of the Cooperative Administration Office (CAO), Manila, thus the Toril Community Cooperative Credit Union began its existence. TCC’s first office was a space beside the convent of Sto. Rosario Parish. Only four personnel were running the operation.
Starting with an initial fixed deposits of P1,157.00 on the day of its registration with a total of 45 members, today, our multi-purpose cooperative boasts of 16,776 members with total assets of Php486.7 Million. Toril Community Cooperative Credit Union Inc. changed its name to Toril Community Cooperative (TCC).
In 1972, TCC amended its by-laws from a Credit Union to a Multi-Purpose Cooperative and introduced, among other things, a self-help mortuary among its members.
In 1980, TCC acquired a residential-type property at Bayanihan St., Toril, Davao City which was converted into an office. This became the new office of the cooperative.
Sometime in 1985 TCC engaged in trading center selling farm implements and groceries to the members but this business did not prosper and was closed sometime in 1990.
In 1992, the General Membership approved the establishment of a Funeral Parlor now called the “TCC Funeral Home”, purposely to assist a decent way for the final destiny of the members and their families by offering immediate, yet affordable rates of services.
In 1995, the General Assembly approved the construction of the new office of TCC in a lot purchased in Saavedra Street, Toril, Davao City.
In 1996, TCC moved to its new 5-storey building with an elevator, the first in the entire district.
In 2006, TCC inaugurated its Condo-Hostel and Dormitory, a 4-storey building located at
Bayanihan St., Toril Poblacion, Davao City. This is the 1st Condo-Hostel that is owned and operated by a primary Cooperative in Mindanao.
