Harini, a housewife, has two children who are still attending school. Her husband, I. Ketut, works at the port. To support the family income, Harini is selling fish in the market. Every day she buys the fish from fishermen and resells. To sell the fish, Harini rents a place in the market. Harini wants to borrow from MUK with a loan of 5M IDR to buy a place/store in the market in order not to hire anymore. Having her own place of business can save the cost of rent. The new locations are more expensive and strategic, so Harini can sell more fish. Harini hopes that with the selection of the strategic location, her sales can increase and will help welfare of her family.
