Mario, is a 43-year-old entrepreneur and is married to Bernadeta, a 29-year-old lady. They are blessed with three children, namely: Thomas, 11, studying at the 1st grade of Elementary School; Melanie, 5, studying in kindergarten; and Stevania 3. Mario and wife originate from East Timor. They moved to West Timor in 1999.

To support his family, Mario is running a poultry business. He has been engaged in this business for three years. He initiated the business by raising 100 chicks. Since the business is growing well, Mario was able to raise more than 200 chicks in the coop. He recently sold the chickens after raising them for a month.

However Mario is thinking to add more chicks to be raised. He is sure that his chickens will be sold quickly, particularly on Christmas Day. For that reason, he is seeking the loan from TLM amounting to IDR 10,000,000. He would like to purchase more chicks and feed for them. He also wants to enlarge the coop so it will be able to accommodate the additional chicks. Mario believes that the business income will enable him to support his children's education costs and to renovate his house as well.
