If her farm doesn't produce enough vegetables, then Paulina will buy additional vegetables from other farmers at Inpres Market (a traditional market in Kupang) and resell them. Paulina can generate daily profits of IDR 10,000 -20,000, which she uses to buy basic necessities for her family. Paulina's income is unstable and sometimes it is very small compared to the cost of daily necessities. Paulina wants to buy more vegetables to sell in order to increase her income, but she doesn't have enough money to do so.
Paulina heard that TLM offers a lending program for poor entrepreneurs like her. She is very interested in joining the program and is requesting a loan of IDR 3,000,000 from TLM. She really hopes to get the loan so she will be able to increase her income by selling more vegetables.
