Marilyn, 31, is a married entrepreneur from Sangay Daku, Ozamis City. She has 4 children and makes a living from her transport service business. She has been running it for almost 5 years now and she earns 4,000 PHP a month. To improve business, she is borrowing 10,000 PHP from GDMPC, which she just joined recently, to obtain accessories and tires. She’s hopeful that she can expand her business before long.
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.
