About Us

Who Are We?

An inferior municipality, Pres. Roxas in the 1980’s was an idyllic agricultural community of settlers coming primarily from the Panay Island in the Visayas, and nearby towns in the Province of North Cotabato (Kidapawan, Matalam, Magpet, Antipas & Arakan). The main agricultural crops are rice, corn, sugarcane, coconut, banana, rubber and the recently introduced oil palm.

Looking back late in 1982, up to the early months of 1983, a long drought occurred in Mindanao, affecting many areas that included Pres. Roxas. In Pres. Roxas, farmlands dried up resulting in the loss of crops and income of many farmers. Failure of harvest led people to starve. People in Pres. Roxas came to seek help from the Catholic Church.

Through the initiative of a Missionary named Fr. Fred Epiz,OMI and some Parish Lay Leaders, a cooperative was conceived.

Mr. Edgar G. Amoronio, a key parish leader, was appointed as manager and worked in the store with just two storekeepers. All three worked as volunteers.

First named as “Tindahang Kooperatiba sa Parokya” (Parish Cooperative), it’s a consumer store.

Started its operation in November 4, 1983 by a group of 47 pioneer members with an initial paid up capital share of P7,000.00.

The First Decade

At the start of 1984 the cooperative ventured into Agri -Marketing & Trading. This aimed to capture the farmers from being abused by loan sharks which was prevalent in the community that time.

To completely address the “Felt-Need” of farmers, credit facilities were also obtained
by the cooperative through the assistance of the local Rural Bank. Credit was in the
form of agricultural inputs

In 1985

From merely a consumer store it moved on and registered as a Multi-Purpose Cooperative with Merchandising, Marketing and Credit as its main Programs. Was then named Sta. Catalina Multi-Purpose Cooperative after the Parish’s patron Saint Sta.
Catalina de Alexandria.

Four(4) Years after 1985

– Upgraded the post harvest facilities (multi-pass rice mill, warehouse, solar dryer and trucking services)
– Fast recruitment of membership

In 1995

With the assistance of some funding agencies abroad, SCMPC implemented various special projects (CWFDC) Now SIKAP FOUNDATION, INC. designed to augment the limited income of marginal upland and lowland farmers.

By November 12, 2010, the Savings and Credit Department split from Merchandising and Marketing program and services. Gen. Manager Edgar G. Amoronio explained during General Assembly wherein there is a need to separate and give autonomy to Marketing & Merchandising operation considering that other distant branches cannot avail of the programs and services of the department Under its new name the STA. CATALINA CREDIT COOPERATIVE operates purely savings & credit while STA.

CATALINA MULTI-PURPOSE COOPERATIVE remains to operates the Merchandising & Marketing programs & services. On track on improving SCMPC, the cooperative sought a partnership with Credit Union Empowerment and Strengthening-Phils.

(CUES-Phils.) in the implementation of MCUB (Model Credit Union Building) methodology through the adherence to strict prudential standards and strict discipline.

Branded FOCCUS (Finance Organization Achieving Certified Credit Union Standards).
