Jocelyn's story

Jocelyn P. is from the village of Sinonoc, Sinacaban, Misamis Occidental. She is 43 years old. Jocelyn is married and has five adult children. To make a living, Jocelyn operates a manufacturing business. The main source of income for the business comes from manufacturing and selling wood products to local businesses and community members.
