Ronald's story

Ronald D. is from the village of Pana-on Misamis Occidental. He is 25 years old. Ronald is single. To make a living, Ronald owns and operates a business venture in the services sector operating transportation services.

In 2009, Ronald joined GDMPC to gain access to financial services to help improve his living situation and ability to engage in business activities. Ronald has successfully repaid a previous loan of 10,000 PHP from GDMPC. Ronald is requesting a new loan of 10,000 PHP, which will be used to repair existing vehicle to provide better service. This loan will be the seventh loan taken out by Ronald from GDMPC. He plans to use the additional revenue generated from the business to improve the general living conditions of his family.
