Jocelyn L. raises pigs. She said she likes having a pig business very much because she enjoys the work and earns a reasonable profit from it. She is 45 years old and single but still looking for a lucky guy to be her husband.
For 20 years, she worked as a purchaser in one of the restaurants in Davao that was owned by Chinese nationals. She was not happy about her job because she didn't receive enough compensation, so she went back to her village to manage the farm.
Jocelyn is asking a loan of PHP 6,000 from CEVI. She will use the loan to buy piglets and pig feed. The loan will truly help her expand the business. It will also help her get started with a new business as she is interested in venturing into another line to augment her income.
CEVI provides their clients with credit assistance, trainings, and insurance coverage and has helped Jocelyn grow her business.
