Mary Jane Jocson lives with her husband, Gilberto, and their four children in the Philippines. For years, Mary has been engaged in rice production as the main source of income for their family. Gilberto also works on the farm to help manage their business operations. Despite their hard work, factors out of their control, such as weather and low market value, have hindered their business and led to financial instability. With low income but high expenses for their family and business, Mary Jane struggled to support both and knew they needed assistance. Mary Jane learned about Opportunity International and was able to join a Trust Group where she received valuable financial training and a loan which she used to improve her rice production. She hopes that she will have a good harvest and her business will prosper so she can better support her family's daily needs and send her children to school so they can have a better life.
