Obet (35) is a married man. He has a baby, namely Vensitiona (4 months), from his marriage to Sarmolina, a 32-year-old lady. Obet covers his family needs by running a tailoring business. He used to work with a senior tailor, but after becoming ready to work independently, Obet decided to resign and initiate his own business at home last year. The business was run with limited capital that he had, which resulted in a small income.

Incidentally, one of Obet’s relatives offered him a business place located at the edge of a main road. By having a new business place, Obet believes that he would be able to earn a bigger income as well as to reach more customers than before. To make his dream come true, Obet then applied for a loan from TLM amounting to IDR 3,000,000. This loan would enable him to pay the rental fee for the business place for 5 years.
