MY OVER-ALL EXPERIENCE AND LEARNING
My experience adds learning to myself, especially when I visited one of the best cooperatives in the country, Novaliches Development Cooperative (NOVADECI). That is he first time I encountered visiting coop near in our area.
The first day I visited NOVADECI, the security guard of the coop didn’t allow me to interview and ask information on any available person involved in the coop, because the guard asked me for a letter allowing me by my professor to visit coop. Due to my pleasing request, one staff of NOVADECI allowed me to interview him, he is Mr. Ronnie Salvador, NOVADECI’s administration staff.
I ask him certain topics needed on m requirements. First is about their membership matters. He just gave me only a piece of information because all the infos about membership are already listed on their pamphlet. The next I asked for the other topics, another member of NOVADECI shared and gave it to me their Annual reports. She is Mrs. Brigitte Rosales, and she told me that most of the requirements I’m looking for was already stated on their annual report, not really categorized but she told me to serve that just only to got ideas.
After that, I did not make the conversation longer anymore because I can now make my requirement using the pamphlet and annual report they gave to me.
These experience helps me to socialize different people especially the persons involved in the coop. I am really thankful for Mr. Salvador and Mrs. Rosales for giving their time to interview them regarding on topics I needed. Due on their busy schedule, they gave their piece of time to entertain me, and they are approachable too because they are also inviting me to be a member of their coop on the right age when I’m ready to be a par of their organization. So that experience adds learning to be a sociable student to other person.
When I scan the content of NOVADECI’s pamphlet and annual report, I challenged to understand all the details of their content because that would be the key to answer the seven topics I need to accomplish.
Some of the principles needed, I used my own knowledge on it based on their annual report. Through the informations, I related my self-understanding to connect it to the principles required.
Other topics I want to gather are mostly listed in Tagalog form. I challenged to understand clearly the statement and try to translate it in English form as possible as I can.
Through my learning, as a student, I really analyzed the informations on the useful sense that makes me work on it seriously and preferably.
The task given to us serves as a knowledgeable way of conducting and gathering information that helps me use my self-analization on the certain data. Through these, it adds knowledge on us (cooperative students) to have a background on different systems of the coop that will provides us a learning on our future as a professional cooperators.
