Jocelyn's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase materials for her handicraft business (making circular baskets).

Jocelyn's story

Jocelyn is a 44 year-old loving mother and an entrepreneur living in San Carlos City Pangasinan with her spouse Freddie. They are blessed with seven children. Together, they manage a manufacturing business, making circular baskets (bilao). They have been doing this for 20 years.

They usually consign their output to establishments selling those items. In this kind of business, she needs additional capital worth 30,000 PHP to buy more stocks of materials to be used in their business.

She would like to improve her output so that she can meet the demand of the customers, who look for quality. Jocelyn also pays the laborers who help them in the business. In the future, Jocelyn would like to save funds for the future expenses of the family and to increase her sales from the business and be able to have a better future.
