Jocelyn is a 23-year-old married woman from Talibon, Bohol. She has no child yet. She engages in seaweed farming. She grows cultured seaweed to earn a living. She has been growing seaweed for almost three years now. Due to lack of capital to continue her livelihood, Jocelyn requested a loan of 6,000 PHP to buy additional seaweed seedlings and pataw (a small float usually made of cork attached to a fishing line) to yield more harvest. In the future, Jocelyn would like to expand her farming business to be successful as well as to improve their standard of living.
