Jocelyn's main source of income is selling fish. She has been in the business for already 13 years. With this activity, she usually generates PHP 3,000 a week, which has provided very essential support for the daily needs of her family. At this moment, Jocelyn needs additional capital to continue to run her business. To make this happen, Jocelyn is applying for a loan of PHP 20,000. She intends to use this amount to buy milkfish ("bangus ") and other kinds of fish to sell in the market. She is hoping that her loan application will be granted, so she can improve her business.
