Liberato, 53 years old, is married, with two children. He lives in Sinonoc, Sinacaban, Misamis Occidental.
To make a living, Liberato owns and operates a piggery, raising pigs for sale. He has been doing this for more than six years.
He borrowed a loan of PHP 10,000 from Gata Daku Multi-Purpose Cooperative (GDMPC) to buy feed and piglets to raise.
In the future, he plans to expand his piggery in order to raise more pigs for sale.
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.
