Hennie is a 53-year-old resident of Villaflor, Oroquieta City. For 10 years as an aid to the income gained from her husband, Hennie has provided her child's needs from the little amount of 10,000 PHP she gains monthly from her own piggery business. She's been a member of GDMPC since 2011. She applied for a loan of 20,000 PHP at GDMPC micro finance to buy feeding supplies. Hennie wants to make expansion to her business one day.
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.
