Margaretha, 38, is married to Nimrod, 50, a private employee. They have four children who are under 15 years old. Three of them are attending school, while the youngest is not attending school yet. Margaretha enjoys her role as a housewife and mother. In addition, she also runs business selling vegetables. Prior to moving to her current place, Margaretha ran the business at the market, but due to her pregnancy she decided to run the business from home. She sells leafy vegetables, mustard greens, cabbage, tomato, eggplant, and also chili in front of her house.

Recently, Margaretha has been planning to improve her business, but she has very limited capital to do so. She requested a loan from TLM amounting to IDR 3,500,000 to purchase more types of vegetable such as garlic, onion, ginger, turmeric, lemongrass, and others. Besides that, Margaretha also plans to use the remaining loan for postnatal fees.
