Paul Clyde is single with an only child, and makes a living by selling barbecue in their town. He earns well and was able to improve this business by repairing the shelter where he does business. He borrowed a new loan from GDMPC micro credit to buy raw ingredients and things used in making barbecue to offer more cooked and grilled foods. He wants to earn more income to save money that he can use in settling his own family in the near future.
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.
