Jocelyne's story

Jocelyne is a 75-year-old woman. She is still active despite her age. She is married and the mother of five children. She lives in a working-class neighborhood in the city. The family owns an earthen house there. She has worked in the trade of iron and nuts and bolts for seventeen years. Her husband is a pedicab driver.

She decided to take out a loan and it proved profitable. She purchased construction bricks with the profits she gained from the last loan. Following this, she hopes to further build her business. She wants to increase revenue. She consequently needs this loan to buy irons and nuts and bolts to resell at the market. She runs a well-located storefront next to the big city market. She will put her profits into savings with the goal of renovating their house in the near future.
