Kornelis buys and sells produce such as tomatoes, bananas, etc. He sells his produce at the market at Oesapa that is around eight kilometers from his village. He travels a long way to many villages to buy his produce.
As a father of six children, he admits that he carries a great responsibility. Besides providing healthy food and other daily needs, he also has to provide for his children’s educational needs, especially that of his eldest daughter who is in the first level at senior high school.
The income generated from his business depends on the capital he has to buy his produce. That is the reason why no matter how hard Kornelis works, he still isn’t able to pay for all of his family’s needs. Due to increasing market prices, the price of produce is increasing as well, and it really affects Kornelis’ business.
Kornelis requested a loan from TLM after joining its small-group lending program. He started with 500,000 IDR and participated in their program for several cycles. The loans have been producing significant benefits. Each loan received has brought improvement to his business.
Nevertheless, Kornelis currently finds it impossible to rely on selling produce only. He now has a plan to raise pigs and chickens. In order to do so, he is requesting an individual loan amounting to 10,000,000 IDR from TLM. He hopes that he will receive that assistance.
