Siprianus owns a kiosk that sells household items such as sugar, coffee, detergent, cigarettes, bath soap, mosquito coils, snacks and soft drinks. He has been running the business for more than 10 years, using his own capital. This business is really vital to Siprianus as it enables him to cover his family's living expenses and the children's school fees.
The increase of market prices and demand by customers for more stock led Siprianus to seek more money to buy various items. He requested a loan amounting to IDR 4,500,000 from TLM. Siprianus plans to spend the loan on petrol, cigarettes, more snacks and soft drinks.
