OSCUS’ mission “to work together to improve the quality of life of its members” is implemented through the execution of its strategic priorities to achieve its vision, “to be a model of the application of values and principles of social responsibility”. With its head office in Ambato, Ecuador, and its eleven branches, OSCUS was awarded the 2010 GOLD EKOS for its management, the CERTIFICATION OF CORPORATE GOVERNANCE in 2011 awarded by ICA Americas for practicing cooperative values and principles, the ISO 9001:2008 CERTIFICATION for processes, both financial and non, in force until 2014. Everything has been made possible by the commitment and dedication of its Directors, Officers and operational staff, but mainly due to the confidence of tens of thousands of members.
