Even though her husband has a regular income to meet the family needs, Hadijah does not want to solely rely on her husband’s income. One of Hadijah hobbies is making cakes and she utilizes this skill to generate income. She produces different types of cakes and cookies, such as bread, platter cakes, sponge cakes, chocolate cookies, “nastar” cakes (made of wheat flour, margarine, eggs, and jam), etc. Hadijah distributes her products to traditional market and kiosks.
Hadijah is thinking of expanding her business by providing many more types of cakes in large quantities. She is requesting a loan for 4,000,000 IDR from TLM, which she will use to purchase flour, rice flour, margarine, eggs, cheese, and other ingredients. She believes that the business has good prospects for the future and would enable her to generate more income for the family.
