Meanwhile, Governor Daniel R. Fernando said that establishing more cooperatives in the province will be a great help to Bulakenyos who want to start their own businesses.

“One of the goals I want to focus on is the strengthening of cooperatives here in our province. Many people will benefit through this especially our fellow Bulakenyos who want to start their own business and livelihood. We are also continuously encouraging large organizations to establish their own cooperatives which the initial fund will be supported by Damayang Filipino with,” Fernando said. ###
