Roque is a single entrepreneur from Rizal, Jimenez in Misamis Occidental. He runs a general store to earn a living.
Thinking that he wants to offer more goods to his customers, he borrowed 7,000 PHP from GDMPC micro-credit to buy additional grocery items to sell. This amount will help him to sustain his business through his own efforts.
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.
