To cover their living expenses, Ayub works as a shrimp fisherman. He has been running this business for 10 years. Ayub usually catches the shrimp in the early morning at 4 am using a trawl net and returns home at 11 am. In a day, Ayub can catch about 2 to 4 kilograms of shrimp and he sells them to his customers. The customers usually pay him at the end of month after they weight all his catch.
However, Ayub cannot catch shrimp now since his trawl net is torn. He does not have money to buy a new trawl net or even to fix the old one. Therefore, he is seeking a loan from TLM amounting to IDR 10,000,000. He plans to spend the loan on some trawl nets to stock and another boat to support his work. Ayub really expects that TLM is willing to assist him with the loan.
