Yanwar is a 43-year-old motor taxi driver. He is married to Mami, a 32-year-old housewife. They have 3 children: Erson, 13 years old; Erlin, 11 years old; Yelki, 4. All of the children are attending school. Yanwar started his motor taxi business, called ‘Ojek’, several years ago in order to cover his family's needs and to pay the education fees of the children.

The income generated is unstable and insufficient to fully cover his family's needs. This situation led Yanwar to initiate a new business that is to lease out rooms. Yanwar has 3 empty rooms to lease out but he needs to renovate them. To implement his plan, Yanwar requested a loan from TLM amounting to IDR 4,000,000 to be spent on ceramics, sand, cement and wall paint.
