Dennis lives in Anonang, Aurora. He has been earning money through proving transportation services for 10 years so as to support the needs of his one child. Dennis gets an income of 7,350 PHP a month from this business. For a 35-year-old father, there’s nothing more that can make him happy, except to see his child successful in her studies. Without hesitation, Dennis is borrowing an amount of 10,000 PHP from GDMPC microcredit to repair his business vehicle in order to provide his child with a better education. He joined GDMPC in 2010. His plan in the future is to hopefully improve his business.
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.
