Jackline is a 37-year-old married woman. She has 4 children, ranging in age from 3 to 13 years old. She describes herself as a go-getter and an ambitious woman. She operates a retail store where she sells toiletries such as Colgate, tissues, and sanitary napkins. She has been involved in this business for 2 years.
