Partner Description:

Gata Daku Multi-Purpose Cooperative (GDMPC) was founded in 1992 by 32 farmer-members to empower people by providing livelihood opportunities and other support services. Today, it has over 15,000 members located in upland, lowland and coastal regions of the Philippines, and offers credit, savings, education, and various social services.

The organization offers loans for business investments, housing, emergencies, education, travel, special events like weddings, microloans, salary loans and several different agricultural loans for inputs, livestock and working capital. On top of that, it provides savings accounts for regular depositors, young people and for tuition funds.

In addition to financial products, GDMPC also helps farmers and fishing families access business-boosting technologies and procure necessary inputs.
