Mangaluru: Cooperative Societies and cooperative movements are the backbone of the grassroots society, said Naveen R D’Souza, Corporator, Bendoor Ward, Mangaluru City Corporation. He was speaking as the Chief Guest at the inauguration of the newly registered St Alphonsa Souhardha Co-operative Society Ltd. (R). He said cooperative societies grow faster when people lend their earnings to the society. People who need money get it at low interest and hence they are saved from the hands of money lenders, who charge more interest.

Naveen R D’Souza, Corporator,  appreciated the efforts of Rev. Fr Mani Veluthedathuparambil, Parish Priest and Patron, St Alphonsa Forane Church, Kankanady, for his hard work and dedication in making the society a reality. “My association with the church, is over 25 years and I am very proud of the way you are growing socially and economically as a community”, stated Naveen R D’Souza.

Dedication to the religious leadership is a major strength of the cooperative movement, he said, citing the example of the grand success of the Odiyoor cooperative society under the leadership of Odiyoor Swamiji. Society is the custodian of the money deposited by the people. They make it available for people who need money for various purposes. Their dedicated services will make the society grow faster, he said.

Rev. Fr Mani Veluthedathuparambil – Parish Priest and patron, congratulated the chief guest for his relentless support. He congratulated the people who have become part of the cooperative movement. Growth will happen when people come together to think alike, he said. This is the beginning, we have greater dreams to fulfil ahead.
