Since the death of her husband in 2009, Agustina needs to work harder to support her family’s living expenses. With her own capital, Agustina initiated a business selling “nabas“ (rice with pork).
Agustina usually works eight hours a day from 7 pm to 2 am. She runs the business in front of a shop building as she knows that the place is strategic. The profit from the business enables her to finance her family and the children's expenses as well.
A week ago, Agustina lost her money when someone stole it. This situation automatically affects her business. She is grateful that there was a loan officer who suggested she join TLM’s Lending Program. She is requesting a loan of IDR 4,500,000 from TLM to continue her business.
