Nova is a 27-year-old single woman who graduated from a vocational school. She lives with her parents in a remote village of Naikliu. It is situated about 85 km from Kupang. Nova has 6 siblings. She is very interested in running a beauty salon and according to her, there are no other people running this type of business in the village.

Using her own capital, Nova opened a beauty salon business in the village of Naibonat. Her business place is located nearby the main road. She believes that her business place is a strategic place that provides her the best opportunity to run the business. According to Nova, her business is still small and very simple. Currently, she only has limited equipment to run the business. With this limitation, the profit generated is still small. Besides that, she still has to pay for the rental fee of IDR 2,500,000 per year. Nova expects to soon have more and better equipment so that she can improve her business. To do so, Nova needs additional capital.

She is requesting a loan of IDR 5,000,000 from TLM. She plans to use the loan to buy new equipment and other beauty products to support her salon. She hopes that the loan will help her improve her business.
