Started as a Farmers Irrigators Association in 1978, now Salug Valley Compact Farming System Multi-purpose Cooperative (SAVACOMPAS) is composed of farmers who are agrarian reform beneficiaries with cluster members of seven (7) compact farmers in the municipalities of Molave, Mahayag, Ramon Magsaysay and Tambulig in Zamboanga del Sur. This organization is engaged in rice production loan, lending for other purposes, input dealership and marketing of palay and milled rice.
From its 80 original members and thirteen thousand eight hundred pesos (P13,800.00) paid up capital, the cooperative has grown in numbers with a total of 645 memberships and increased its net worth up to P 5.7 million in 2011. However, the present demand of good quality rice posed a big problem on the cooperative. With their obsolete rice drying facility, the cooperative produces low quality rice during rainy season, hence, a need to upgrade their existing drying equipment.
