Catherine's story

For over five years in Canubay, Oroquieta City, Misamis Occidental, Catherine, a 33-year-old married mother of one child, has made a living through the operation of a general store. She sells a variety of food and home-use products and earns 20,000 PHP a month from these activities.

Recently, Catherine joined GDMPC to gain access to financial services to help improve her business and living situation. She is now requesting a loan of 30,000 PHP to purchase new items such as candies, Milo (malted milk), shampoo, soaps, etc.

Catherine plans to use the additional revenue generated from the loan as a reserve for future emergencies.
