Jocelyne is a hard-working mother who is engaged in selling AVON, Natasha and MSE products in her village. She is 48 years old and married with two school-aged children. She aims to strengthen her business so that she can earn income to help her husband finance the education of their children and renovate their house to live more comfortably.

She wants to increase her product offerings to satisfy her custumers' needs, but due to inadequate capital, she needs an additional capital of 25,000 Philippines pesos (PHP) to buy lotions, body sprays, underwear, jewelry, footwear, and shirts to sell in the village. She believes that her patience and strong determination will help her to achieve her goals.
