"Serving as secretary of the supervisory board at MitaCCUL which is the watch dog of the union has provided me with many lessons. Working with the supervisory board is a daunting task. I had to go through the books of the credit union, the budget; to ensure it is well executed, if the budget headings were followed and if the partern to spend the budget was followed".

"I also had to look at the loan size; if loans were properly granted, see if the securities are there for the loans to be recovered. Go through the files of workers, board members. Because of my stay at the supervisory board, I have known much about the cooperatives and how it functions".
