Jinna is 45 years old and comes from San Miguel, Bohol. She is married with two adult sons. She has been cooking and selling peanut rolls (peanut roll is crushed sweetened peanuts that are wrapped in lumpia wrapper and fried) for an income. This has been her business for six years now. She is asking for a loan to buy ingredients such as peanuts, brown sugar and cooking oil. Her profit will be for healthy diet for her family and reinvestment into the same business.

Jinna is dependent on the livelihood that she knows best, so in the future she would like to explore other aspects of food vending so she can have a better income.
