Our Story

See who we are and how we came to be one of the leading workers cooperative supplying various positions to businesses in the Philippines.

Kabraso Multi-purpose Cooperative, commonly known as KMC, is a local workers cooperative covering diverse industries.

Kabraso forms part of one of the more recognized service providers in the country, the TSI Group of Companies. In 2009, the cooperative was realized with a singular purpose: to provide cost-efficient service to clients through a cooperative setup.
 
But more than singularity, significant numbers are always a worthier discussion. There’s no better way to talk about numbers than associating it with Kabraso, whose employees and active clients across the country compose the totality of the workers cooperative.

Core Values

A Workers Cooperative That Lives Up To Its Earnest Name Which Translates To “A Partner”

The idea behind the name of the cooperative was simple. It was to develop a cooperative society that engaged in reciprocal behavior working in the benefit of the institution’s owner-members.

As a people-centered enterprise with more than 150 years of combined professional experience, KMC is known for its strong member support. Specifically, we guarantee our worker-owners a share in profit through annual dividends and patronage refunds and offer lending facilities via cash, groceries, appliances, motorcycle loans, and more. 

From on-site ATM provisions, lending facilities, and insurance to government-mandated benefits—all of these privileges are given because the workers’ cooperative values social entrepreneurship. Such gestures are reflections of Kabraso’s legitimacy as the top workers’ cooperative in the country.

A Cooperative League of Our Own

As a multi-purpose cooperative, we ensure compliance with all organizational procedures and policies. Kabraso is organized pursuant to the DO 174 and Cooperative Development Authority, which regulates that a cooperative must be registered with a declaration of one specific service only. 

By 2011, Kabraso became the first-ever workers’ cooperative in the Philippines to be ISO-accredited, bestowed by the certifying body TUV Rheinland. This certification proves Kabraso’s significant contributions concerning cooperative business relations. 

Ultimately, Kabraso also conducts regular business processing improvements. We have continuously kept in check the latest cooperative practices in the construction, mining, manufacturing, renewable energy, and logistics industries. 

Everything we do is aligned with our pledge to nurture our partners, people and members as we move forward to success.

GUARANTEED SAFETY AND SECURITY

As much as the cooperative values credibility and sustainability, Kabraso holds the same regard for privacy compliance. We have put together a special department that safeguards data regulation so clients do not have to worry about any prevalent business concerns arising from unwanted disclosure of data.

True to Our Mission

With a vast marketing network found all over the country, Kabraso lends its knowledge and experience to improving human and professional development and positive transformation of society. And with unequaled progress, we remain the pioneering provider of unique opportunities for professionals.
 
Here at KMC, we believe that every business relationship should benefit both parties involved. That is why we will continue setting a reasonable standard in the industry through democratic organization techniques and upholding a culture of competency and commitment.
