Judit's story

Judit A. is from the village of Sinonoc, Sinacaban, Misamis Occidental. She is 47 years old, married, and has four adult-aged children. To make a living, Judit owns and operates a specialized retail store where she sells tuba (coconut wine) in the local community. Judit has been engaged in her business for over two years and earns approximately 1,000 PHP per month from these activities.
In 2008, Judit joined Kiva partner, GDMPC, to gain access to financial services to help improve her living situation and ability to engage in business activities. She has successfully repaid a previous loan of 6,000 PHP from GDMPC. This loan was used as additional capital for her business. Judit is requesting a new loan of 7,000 PHP, which will be used to purchase additional tuba for sale. This loan will be her fourth from GDMPC. She plans to use the additional revenue generated from the business to improve and expand her business.

GDMPC is one of the most progressive cooperatives in Mindanao, Philippines. It has four branches and three unit offices covering the provinces of Zamboanga del Sur, Lanao del Norte and Misamis Occidental. Its membership is composed mostly of farmers, fisherfolk and small entrepreneurs.
