Cresanta is 40 years old, married with 3 children, and lives in Aurora, Zamboanga del Sur. Cresanta started a mini-grocery store 9 years ago, and continues the business today. She sells assorted products in the area. Each month she earns 5,000 PHP from her business.
Not contented, Cresanta plans to add an extension to her store, so she has requested a loan of 50,000 PHP to purchase additional stock to sell.
Cresanta has been member of GDMPC more than 3 years. In the future, she dreams of having a big grocery store in the area.
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.
