Naomi assists her husband in producing extra income for the family by selling cakes and sweet ice. She makes this kind of foodstuff herself. She distributes the products in a school canteen and kiosk near her residence. Sometimes the profit generated from the business is not sufficient in meeting her family's needs as well as the educational needs of Sonya and Lian.
Naomi met with a TLM loan officer who offered a loan product. She then requested a loan of IDR 12,000,000 from TLM. She would like to spend the loan on Sonya’s university costs and for purchasing more ingredients, i.e. wheat flour, frying oil, bananas, etc. for her business; also she would like to help her husband in enlarging his catfish business. She is expecting that the loan will bring more good impact for the business and family life.
