Jonard is 37 years old, married and has three school-aged children. The family is residing in Calamba, Misamis Occidental, Philippines. It's been Jonard's dream to own a motorcycle for subsistence, which was brought into reality through hard work and determination. From that time on, he actively drives and sends passengers to designated areas safely. It allows him to earn PHP 10,000 a month, considering other sources of irregular income, too.
A loan of PHP 50,000 from GDMPC will absolutely help Jonard to repair his motorcycle. The availability of this fund is a channel to facilitate operations immediately. With this loan, Jonard is expecting to pursue his job with a motor vehicle in good running condition to provide satisfactory service to customers. He hopes to sustain the daily needs and improve further service capacity.
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.
