Cresilda of Ozamis City has been raising pigs for more than 10 years and earns about 8,000 PHP per month. She’s 43 years old now, yet continues to hang on with her piggery livelihood to give an adequate life to her 2 children. She has been a member of GDMPC since 2007. In order to enhance her livestock before selling, she is borrowing the amount of 14,000 PHP from GDMPC microcredit to buy feeding supplies. Cresilda hopes that someday her children will be successful in their careers.
