Co-Maker Policy


Version Date: September 29, 2019

 

Article I

DECLARATION OF POLICY

This policy paper provides guidelines governing the co-maker system of the Cooperative. The policy is aimed at securing members’ investments in the Cooperative.

 

Article II

CO-MAKER SYSTEM

A co-maker is a person who, by contract, promises to pay another person’s (principal borrower) loan if that person fails to do so. – Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas

 

Although a co-maker may not have benefitted from the loan proceeds, he/she is equally responsible to ensure the loan made by the principal borrower gets paid, including interests and other charges.

 

The co-maker system is mandatory for all borrowers whose paid-up capital is less than the total amount of outstanding principal loan balance plus the new loan application. For borrowers with no credit risk involved (i.e. paid-up capital is enough to cover all outstanding loans plus any new loan application), no co-makers will be required.

 

Article III

CO-MAKER REQUIREMENTS

Below are requirements to be a co-maker:

  1. Must be a member of HPP Employees Multipurpose Cooperative
  2. Must be a member in good standing
  3. Must have paid-up share capital of at least P1,000.00
  4. Must sign in the Loan Application Form
  5. A co-maker can guarantee a maximum of three (3) outstanding loans provided that they are from three (3) different principal borrowers. 

 

Article IV

RESIGNATION PROCEDURES

 

Section 1. Termination of Membership. Membership in the cooperative may be terminated voluntarily or involuntarily. A member who wishes to voluntarily terminate his/her membership is required to give a 30-day written notice to the board of directors using but submitting the Notice of Resignation/Associate Form which can be downloaded from the Member's Area. 

 

Section 2. Requirements for Resigning Co-Makers. If a resigning member happens to be a co-maker of a loan, the principal borrower of the loan must secure a replacement co-maker using Co-Maker Replacement Form within 30 days of the original co-maker’s resignation date. Failure to get a replacement co-maker will mean suspension of new loan availments for the member-borrower and the non-release of share capital for the resigning co-maker.

 

Section 3. Procedure for Settlement of Outstanding Loans. The following order will be followed for settlement of a resigning member’s outstanding loans:

  1. Automatic deductions from BPI Payroll Account
