Joselina is 42 years old, married, and lives peacefully in Solana with her spouse and children. Joselina has a business selling livestock feed to the people in their village. She gains minimal income in her business but she manages her income well for their sustenance. She appreciates her family's thriftiness.
She would like to increase her sales, and that is why she is now asking for a loan of 20,000 PHP to buy more sacks of livestock feed to sell. This will increase her profits as well. Someday, with continuous perseverance, Joselina will develop her business and improve her family's current living situation.
