Fe is a 49-year old resident of Anonang, Aurora. Fe provides for her three children's needs from the small amount of 8,000 PHP she gains monthly from her own pig business. She has maintained this business for five years as an aid to the income gained from her husband.
This year she became a member of GDMPC, and she has applied for a loan of 10,000 PHP at GDMPC Microfinance to buy feeding supplies. Fe wants to expand 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.
