CLIMBS Life and General Insurance Cooperative, established at Cagayan De Oro in 1971, is a leading LIFE & NON-LIFE micro-insurance provider in the Philippines licensed by the Cooperative Development Authority (CDA) & the Insurance Commission (IC). Through the years, CLIMBS leads and strengthens its advocacy in providing insurance protection especially for the grassroots of the country while upholding the cooperative principles as its way of doing business. Founded in 1971 by the late Atty. Mordino Cua and Atty. Aquilino Pimentel Sr., CLIMBS started by bringing mutual protection to its members as an alternative to insurance products offered by big traditional insurance companies especially in the Visayas and Mindanao. With increasing number of members who wish to be protected by insurance, throughout the years, CLIMBS offered more and more services to cover their increasing needs. It eventually ventured into partnerships with primary cooperatives nationwide through CoopAssurance Center (CAC) to become a distribution channel of insurance products and services to its members and, overall, as a financial solutions provider to cooperatives and their respective members.
