Even though Josua earns income on a regular basis, Henny is willing to earn more income by running a used clothing business. Henny is grateful that she can assist her husband in generating more money for her family. From the income she can cover her family's daily needs. Moreover, her children are growing up and all of them are at school now so Henny and Josua have to finance their education.
Fortunately Henny is assisted by her sister, who lives in Batam, who buys good quality used clothing for Henny. Henny can resell them at a fair price. She usually sells door to door, particularly to her regular customers, as she can sell out quickly.
Currently Henny plans to improve her business by purchasing more used clothing from Batam but, unfortunately, she does not have enough capital. She is seeking a loan of IDR 3,000,000 from TLM to buy more stock. She is hoping that TLM will approve her loan application soon.
