SIDC Cooperative Principles


Voluntary and Open Membership

Cooperatives are voluntary organizations, open to all persons able to use their services and willing to accept the responsibilities of membership, without gender, social, racial, cultural, political or religious discrimination.


Democrative Member Control

Cooperatives are democratic organizations that are controlled by their members who actively participate in setting their policies and making decisions. Men and women serving as elected representatives, directors or officers are accountable to the membership. In primary cooperatives, members have equal voting rights of one-member, one-vote. Cooperatives at other levels are organized in the same democratic manner.


Member Economic Participation

Members contribute equitably to, and democratically control, the capital of their cooperatives. At least part of that capital is the common property of the cooperative.

They shall receive limited compensation or limited interest, if any, on capital subscribed and paid as a condition of membership. Members allocate surpluses for any or all of the following purposes: developing the cooperative by setting up reserves, part of which should at least be indivisible; benefitting members in proportion to their partonage of the cooperative's business; and, supporting other activities approved by the membership.


Autonomy and Independence

Cooperatives are autonomous, self-help organizations controlled by their members. If they enter into aggreements with other organizations, including government, or raise capital from external sources, they shall do so on terms that ensure democratic control of their members and maintain their cooperative autonomy.


Education, Training and Information

Cooperatives shall provide education and training for their members, elected and appointed representatives, managers, and employees, so that they can contribute effectively and efficiently to the development of their cooperatives.


Cooperation Among Cooperatives

Cooperatives serve their members most effectively and strengthen the cooperative movement by working together through local, national, regional and international structures.


Concern for Community

Cooperatives work for the sustainable development of their communities through policies approved by their members.

SIDC Cycle

And yet I feel that I never was a greater artist than now. When, while the lovely valley teems with vapour around me, and the meridian sun strikes the upper surface.

SIDC is a key driver for enabling small farmers to take advantage of the economic opportunities associated with them.

Farmers are able to reap more economic gains than they would have if they earned as individual producers.

Members can be one of the paiwi system availers, the contract-growing project of SIDC that has brought means of livelihood to members by giving them the opportunity to raise hogs.

SIDC gives assistance to its members who wanted to put up a SIDC Feeds outlet by providing them with credit line that will assist them in their livelihood.

SIDC though its KooPinoy SIDC Savings and Loans venture provides farmers with financial assistance to sustain their financial capacity.
