In his brief remarks, Senator Zubiri said the cooperatives still remain the
partners of ordinary workers and all work toward providing the members financial assistance, as well as other benefits that would uplift their quality of life. He also commended the city government of Makati for giving proper recognition to the top cooperative with the highest assets, as well as the other recognitions for the Search for the Outstanding Cooperatives in 2011. These cooperatives are the ones that have performed well in managing cooperative assets. They have designed viable lending schemes that attracted the members to avail of them, but at the same time, would not be burdensome for the members to pay. The exemplary planning and management of cooperatives set them apart from the rest, and should, therefore, be recognized.

With the theme “Transformative Cooperatives for People, Planet, Prosperity and Peace”, the Philippine IYC 2012 aimed to increase public awareness about cooperatives and their contributions to advance the 4P’s for sustainable development, engage government to create policy environment conducive to the formation, growth and stability of coops, and to advance the 5 priority areas, the PCMTDP and CDA 3 point agenda.

TELESCOOP Sponsors Christmas Party and Donates P50K to Cancer-stricken Indigent Children TELESCOOP sponsored a Christmas Party for cancer patients confined at the National Children Hospital located at Quezon City and donated a P50,000.00 subsidy for indigent children as medical assistance on December 29, 2012. The donation will benefit five (5) cancer patients, P10,000.00 each, for their medicines and medical treatment needs,” TELESCOOP Chairperson Marcos R. De Leon said. “This socio-civic or outreach program is in consonance with Article 53 of R.A. 9520 which states that every cooperative shall draw up regular reports of its program of activities, including those in pursuance of their socio-civic undertakings, showing their progress and achievements….” De Leon added. The National Children’s Hospital, a
fully-subsidized government hospital, has been the frontrunner in the care of pediatric patients, in different stages of life and different types of diseases. Although almost 90% of patients are indigent, they have never been deprived of admission despite financial constraints. The delivery of services for indigent patients is done through sponsorship, collaboration with government and non-government organizations and individuals. Through the years, this edifice has been and will always be a living testament of loving quality patient care and concern for all Filipino children.

Lewie de Leon
Irene Susan T. Dungo
HOME Inbound, Sampaloc
Marketing Specialist, MarkCom
TELESCOOP helps me financially when I needed it the most specially when it comes to medicines, hospitalization, bills payment and even other loans payment. Dividends from loans are just some of the many benefits we can enjoy being a member.
Buying three units of Apple I-phone 4s for my daughter and son-in-law, as well as for myself, seems so convenient and easy through TELESCOOP! It has the widest range of appliances and top-of-the-line and most latest gadgets. The price is comparatively lower than most outlets or shops. Not to mention that you are assured you are getting the genuine gadgets with warranties with the proliferation of bogus units and clones.
Susana P. Samping
Jeanne F. Tuazon HOME-ICCS, Sampaloc Exchange Telescoop helps me a lot especially in times of financial needs. As a member, one can easily ask for financial assistance, take for example the Multi-Purpose Loan which you may use for school tuition fees.
SSC – San Fernando, La Union TELESCOOP is the answer to the members, family circle in times of financial constraints. Ready to extend immediate services coupled with a smile. It eases one’s burden from various necessities such as tuition fees and other personal needs. TELESCOOP promotes smooth interpersonal relationship among PLDT Stakeholders and members. It serves as linkages to the community in a very unique cooperative way. KUDOS TELESCOOP! Let’s promote in enhancing more services of our own cooperative. SALAMAT TELESCOOP….: )
Yolanda R. Rivero
Juliet F. Libo-On
Home BO Management, Cauayan, Isabela Exchange
Bacolod Exchange It lets me enjoy the convenience and benefits offered by purchasing a variety of products and enjoy loans with lower interest. Participate in the annual membership meetings and electing representatives to the Board of Directors. Share, in any net savings through the annual patronage dividends. Also one factor that Telescoop help me the proceeds of my loan is to meet the financial costs and expenses requirement for the dialysis of my brother; car loan, constructing house and tuition fees of my children.
As I widow sending two kids in college and one in elementary, I avail of TELESCOOP loans to pay for their tuition fees and school allowances. I can do it as frequent as I need it most specially to settle their tuition fees in installment basis. Well, wow I just couldn’t picture myself financing the needs of my children and giving them the best education that any parent desire! And that’s all just being a TELESCOOP member. I may consider myself as one of the luckiest employees earning a big basic pay but at most times not enough to meet my family’s needs. I am even luckier that TELESCOOP is always there as part of my dream’s fulfillment. I am very, very lucky to be accommodated by TELESCOOP staff, whom I never had a chance to personally meet, but giving me the very best and swift accommodation to have my loans processed in no time. TELESCOOP should be offered to all even to none-PLDT offices since this is a cooperative made to help those who are really in need of help.
