Rosefina is a 50-year old resident of Biasong, Lopez Jaena. She provides for her 3 children from the little amount of PHP 8,000 she earns monthly from her own piggery business, which she has been running for 2 years as an aid to the income gained from her husband. However, since 2010 she's been a member of GDMPC, and she is applying for a loan with GDMPC micro finance of PHP 15,000 to buy feeding supplies.
Rosefina wants to make expansions 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.
