Diffun Saranay and Development Cooperative (DISADECO)

The Diffun Saranay Development Cooperative (DISADECO) was born on July 2, 1988 when 51 poor rice farmers from the four barangays of Ma. Clara, San Isidro, Isidro Paredes and Bannawag met under the shade of a mango tree at the Gabrillo Residence at Ma. Clara, Diffun, Quirino to discuss ways and means to improve their lot. Resultantly, the group decided to organize a cooperative calling it the Diffun Credit Cooperative Inc. (DCCI). Subsequently, trainors from Santiago Credit and Development Cooperative (SACDECO) with the assistance of MAO Romulo Mandac of the Department of Agriculture conducted a pre-membership seminar. Likewise, the first set of officers was elected as follows:

                                                Ramon B. Piano          -                       Chairman

                                                Corazon T. Ballesteros-           Vice- Chairman

                                                Rogelio P. Dela Cruz   -           Director

                                                Pablo T. Sado              -           Director

                                                Marcelo O. Arcebal     -           Director

It started its operations with FIVE THOUSAND TWO HUNDRED (P5, 200.00) paid-up share capital.A non-government organization, the World Vision International, whose mission is community development invested P40, 000.00 to the cooperative and also helped out in registering it with the BACOD.

Only a few months after its registration with BACOD, key officers (chairman, vice-chairman and manager) resigned due to transfer of employment. The budding cooperative suffered its first test. The remaining officers were unfazed, however, a reorganization immediately took place. Rogelio Dela Cruz was elected chairman, Elizabeth G. Somera as Vice-chairman, Benjamin Gabrillo treasurer, Fausta Garcia Secretary and Pablo Sado and Evaristo Acebo as members of the BOD. The officers sweated a lot in educating would be members for people are sick of the “Kita-Pati” syndrome. Sacrifices paid off for after six years of operations. Membership grew dramatically convincing the general membership to amend its constitution and by-laws. In March 21, 1994, the area of operation was amended from municipal-wide to province-wide and name was amended as Diffun Credit and Development Cooperative (DICREDECO).

In 2006, officers of the cooperative opted not to rely on external borrowing but operate utilizing internal resources only. The total assets of the cooperative then was P52, 216,237.07 from the meager P5, 200.00 at the start of operations.

On January 19, 2007, an amendment by substitution was registered by the cooperative with the Cooperative Development Authority (CDA) changing the name from DICREDECO to Diffun Saranay Development Cooperative (DISADECO) and amending all other provisions in the Article of Cooperation and By-Laws in compliance with the new requirements of the CDA.

At the end of 2007, after a year of operation using only internal resources, a tremendous ten (10) million leap in total assets was realized through the able leadership of Marciana D. Foryasen as chairman, Ma. Retchelle D. Jose as manager and Ernesto V. Artates as treasurer.

It was also at the last quarter of 2007 where construction of the 2 storey DISADECO Farmers Center started and was inaugurated March 8, 2008 utilizing internal resources. The basement and ground floor of the DISADECO Farmers Center serves as the center for the agri-business sector of the cooperative while the second floor houses the DISADECO Super mart.

Growth and development inspired DISADECO management to push           through            with     the implementation of the cooperative’s five year development plan. In   January 30,      2009, ground breaking of the             DISADECO Grains Processing Center          (DGPC) was   celebrated        along   with the inauguration of Espiritista Street.     Immediately after the   ground             augmented the P200, 000.00 financial support             from the COOP           NATCCO        Party just to     bring in electric current at the project site.             DGPC includes           a village type corn drying        facility, bio-N mixing plant,     a          warehouse             and drying pavement. It has long plan of        having a           palay    re-circulating   drying facility, multi-pass rice mill, feed mill and     organic            fertilizer           production facility. The DGPC was inaugurated             December 12, 2009     along   with the inauguration of the 4-wheel drive      tractor availed by DISADECO   through the GMA Corn Program.

In the same          year, the second branch was    opened at San Mateo, Isabela December 10,   2012. Continuous education of what        is a       cooperative emphasizing         that      it is the only way out of poverty             contributed to members          realization of    the need to continuously save and       patronize the             services of the coop.   As a result, total asset of the cooperative at     the end of the year is             134,010,738.15 with the award as Gawad      Parangal          National Nominee by the       Cooperative Development   Authority.
