Aljon is a 19-year-old man living in Aurora, Zamboanga del Sur, Philippines. He is a single man who runs a transport business for a living. He has been driving his two-wheeled vehicle to transport passengers to and from designated destinations. Aljon gets PHP 3,000 a month from services offered. In his single status, he enjoys meeting many girls or individuals and befriending them sometimes.
Earlier this year, Ajon joined Gata Daku MPC to access financial services. He is requesting a loan of PHP 5,000 to repair the tires for his motor vehicle and to buy other accessories. Maintaining the vehicle in good running condition will help him pursue and cover his daily needs.
Aljon plans to further improve the appearance of his vehicle to attract more passengers to ride on it and expand sitting capacity to earn more income.
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.
