Jocelyn is 43 years old and married with seven children. She works hard to provide for her family. She runs a coconut wine retailing business in the Philippines and requested a 29,000 PHP loan through NWTF to buy additional coconut wine.
She has borrowed and paid off twenty-eight loans from NWTF before this loan. She has been running her coconut wine business for twelve years and also earns income from a cafeteria and from pig fattening.
Jocelyn hopes to save money to expand her business and send her children to college.
