Hog raising has been Jocelyn's business. She is 43 years old and married. Aside from her livestock business, she also owns three hectares of rice field and one hectare of corn farm. According to her, farming has been the primary source of income of her family.
Jocelyn wants to raise her hogs to be healthy and free from any diseases so that she can obtain an increased income and more loyal buyers. To make her dreams come true, she is seeking a loan of PHP 20,000 which will be used to buy livestock feed and vitamins for her hogs. She knows that someday she could be a better businesswoman provided that the lenders continue to support her financially.
