Meni is a 34-year-old lady who is married to Melki, a 43-year-old man. They are blessed with four children: Yulmen, 18, and Sani, 16; both are at Senior High School and currently living with their grandmother in another village; Jesica, 8, at the fourth grade of Primary School and Alda, 1, not at school yet.

Meni’s husband supports their family by selling fish from door to door, but the profit generated is often insufficient to fully cover their daily needs. Meni then decided to run her own business, a kiosk, to support her husband in generating more income. Meni has been running the business for three years. She initiated the business by using her own small capital.

Meni and her husband are a hard-working couple. They are thinking about running another business such raising livestock: cattle and pigs. Meni is optimistic that the business will help them generate more income for their family. Therefore, she would like to request a loan of IDR 10,000,000 to purchase young cattle and piglets to be raised and to purchase more stock such as instant noodles, shampoo, snacks, etc. for her kiosk business. Meni is hoping that TLM will approve her loan application soon.
