She and her husband work together in order to earn a living. Jocelyn generates income through her hog-fattening business. She has been involved with this kind of business for two years.
With her determination to improve her way of life and increase her income, she is asking for a loan of PHP 5,000, which will be used to buy feeds, medicine and vitamins for her hogs. She hopes and prays to gain enough profit from her hog-fattening business to meet her family's basic necessities.
