Rolando is a 33-year old resident of Magsaysay, Panaon.
Rolando supports his family from the little amount of 8,000 PHP he has gained monthly from his private transport service business for the past three years.
He has been a member of GDMPC since 2012, and he applied for a loan of 40,000 PHP to purchase vehicle spare parts and accessories. Rolando wants to expand his 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.
