Simon is a 35-year-old man married to Naema, a 27-year-old lady. They have been blessed with three children: Melani, age 8, who is studying in the third grade of elementary school; Maichel, age 5, who is attending kindergarten and Pricilia, age 4.

To cover their daily needs, Simon works as a fishmonger. He sells fish from one house to another. He used to work as a public minivan driver for 10 years but he then resigned from the job and decided to be a fishmonger three years ago. Simon usually wakes up at 4 am to buy fresh fish from the fisherman and then resells them to his customers.

Simon realizes that he cannot survive with his current business because sometimes in rainy season he has difficulties getting fish from the market. Therefore, Simon is thinking of trying another business: raising pigs and reselling them to the pork traders. Simon is requesting a loan from TLM amounting to IDR 4,500,000. He wants to spend the loan on two pigs to be fattened. He hopes that his loan application will be approved by TLM soon.
