DLSU-D Development Cooperative


The DLSU-D Development Cooperative aims to be a model and leader cooperative empowered to uplift the economic, social and spiritual conditions of its members.


As a multi purpose cooperative, we are committed to provide the best quality services in the areas of economic, social and spiritual assistance.


The De La Salle University - Dasmariñas Faculty Development Cooperative (DLSU-D FDC) is a multi-purpose cooperative. It started during the incumbency of Faculty Association Executive Committee, SY 2003 -2005: Jose R. Domingo - President, Jing Reyes - Vice President, Sonia Gementiza - Secretary, Jackie Morta - Treasurer, Loida Ilano - Auditor, and Arnel Sanchez - PRO. The cooperative was conceptualized as a response to the needs of the faculty members to improve their economic status and to have a venue for financial support. During the campaign period of the Party of Empowered La sallian Educators (PELE) from which the incumbent officers belonged, they assured their constituents an income generating project through a faculty canteen. Mr. Domingo started to schedule meetings with the FA advisory board (composed of former FA presidents) to solicit their support and comments regarding the possibility of putting up a canteen in DLSU-D campus through cooperative. It was followed with the multi-sectoral meeting (Staff, Parents, Alumni, and Students) inviting them to invest in the idea of organizing a cooperative. The DLSU-D community officially accepted the operation of the cooperative after three meetings in the Academic council, one in the Operation council and twice in the President council meetings.

On September 8, 2003 , the cooperative received its certificate of registration LGA-5831from the Cooperative Development Authority (CDA). The first Pre-Membership Education Seminar was conducted by the Cooperative Division, Office of the Governor at DLSU-Dasmariñas, Luis Aguado Viewing Room on July 18, 2003 . It was attended by the following:

What is a Cooperative?

A cooperative is a duly registered association of persons, with a common bond of interest, who have voluntarily joined together to achieve a lawful common social or economic and making equitable contributions to the capital required and accepting a fair share of the risks and benefits of the undertaking in accordance with universally-accepted cooperative principles.

What are the benefits derived from membership in cooperatives?
    Economic Benefits

  2. Members avail of loans at reasonable rate of interest for productive and provident purposes; thus, increasing the members' income.
Social Benefits
  1. Members develop awareness in solving common problems or needs among themselves.
  2. Members develop the feeling of belongingness, love and concern for fellowmen.
  3. Membership in cooperative inculcates unified participation in community affairs.
How is a cooperative financed?

Cooperative financing comes primarily from the small scattered resources of the members themselves accumulated through planned and organized programs from other sources as follows:

  1. Share Capital - Direct membership capital shall in the form of shares (used to be called fixed deposits). The shares represent the permanent working capital of De La Salle University-Dasmariñas Development Cooperative (DLSU-D DC).

    This is the reason why a member is required to subscribe an initial of Php 1,250 (25% of Php5,000 minimum subscription). Each member shall save in the share capital at least Php250.00 per payday.

  2. Savings Deposits - Any member, in addition to this share capital investment, may open a savings deposit, the rate of interest of which shall be determined by the Board of Directors in the beginning of each fiscal year in no case to exceed the rate prescribed by the Central Bank of the Philippines.

    Savings deposits not falling below Php 2,000.00 during any calendar month shall be entitled to interest to be computed quarterly based on the lowest monthly balance outstanding during the period. The interest shall be credited to the depositor's account and the same shall earn interest from the date it is credited at the same rate as savings deposits.

  3. Revolving Capital- The De La Salle University-Dasmariñas Development Cooperative (DLSU-D DC) may adopt a scheme of generating capital by deferring payment of interest on shares and patronage refund for a period not exceeding five (5) years and with a rate of interest consistent with the rate prescribed by the Cooperative Development Authority.

    The principle of "first in, first out" shall apply. For example, interest on shares and patronage refund deferred in January 2000 for a period of five years shall be paid in January 2005 with all interests earned compounded annually; interest deferred in 2001 shall be paid in 2006 and so on.

  4. Reserves- At least 10% of the annual income of the DLSU-D DC shall be set aside as General Reserve Fund to be accumulated for the stability of the DLSU-D DC. Any losses suffered by the DLSU-D DC may be charged against the General Reserve Fund upon authority by the members. Upon the dissolution of the DLSU-D DC, the General Reserve Fund shall not be distributed to the members, but shall be donated to the Cooperative Education and Training Fund of the government.

  5. Loan Capital- Inadequacy of internally generated capital of the DLSU-D DC may be supplemented with borrowed capital from the members or from lending institutions. The DLSU-D DC may also negotiate with the government's Cooperative Development Loan Fund for direct loan assistance or guarantee.

  6. Subsidies, Grants and Donations- The DLSU-D DC is authorized by law to accept subsidies, grants, and donation from local or foreign sources, subject to the rules promulgated by the Cooperative Development Authority.

The following procedures shall be strictly followed in dealing with members with salary deficits. This shall be strictly implemented in the collection of payments of loans, but excluding savings of members.

  1. The moment the office receives the deduction report from the DLSU-D Accounting Office, the clerk in-charge should generate a report on the deficiency of members on their loan payments and the same will be forwarded to the Credit & Collection Committee for review.

  3. In the event that a member who has been given a deficit memo for the previous pay day incurs another deficit on the succeeding payday, he/she will not be given another memo, but the case will be forwarded to the Mediation and Conciliation Committee for settlement.

The conference should be held within 4 days upon receipt of the member and his co-makers of the notice to appear. Non-appearance of the concerned members in the conference would mean waiver of their rights to make the necessary arrangement on how they could settle the unpaid loan balance. In that case, the Mediation and Conciliation Committee shall motu propio decides cases. The results of the conference will then be forwarded to the Credit & Collection Committee, copy furnished to the COOP Office and the BOD.
