Jinky is a 35-year-old resident of Carangan, Ozamis City. For 3 years, she has provided her 7 children's needs from the little amount of 5,000 PHP she gains monthly from her own piggery business as an aid to the income gained from her husband. She became a member of GDMPC in 2009. Jinky has applied for a loan at GDMPC micro finance of 13,500 PHP to buy feeding supplies. Jinky wants to make an 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.
