Nikson is a 30-year-old farmer who lives with his father, Cornelis, 60 years old, and his mother, Yuliana, 57 years old. Nikson plants and sells vegetables like tomatoes, chilies and basil. He harvests the vegetables almost every week then sells them at the traditional market. The income from selling vegetables helps him in meeting his family's needs.

In order to support his business, Nikson would like to buy a water pump to help him in watering the farm. He would also like to plant more vegetables and therefore needs more capital to buy more seedlings and fertilizer. To implement his plan, Nikson is requesting a loan from TLM amounting to IDR 5,000,000. Nikson is hoping that the loan will help him in improving the business.
