Jocelyn is a 40-year-old married woman and a mother of five children from San Miguel, Bohol. She and her husband have been rice farmers for more than 20 years now.
Jocelyn is asking for a loan to buy additional fertilizer and pesticides for the farm. This will help Jocelyn and her husband improve their farm's productivity and yield.
In the future, Jocelyn hopes to make her business a success, save for the schooling of her children, and repay her loan on time.
