Jahya is a 44-year-entrepreneur married to Selfina, 40. From the marriage, they are blessed with three children named Yuningsih, 18, who graduated from vocational school; Fernando, 14, who is in the third grade of elementary school; and Yerikson, 10, who is in the fifth grade of elementary school.

Jahya has been raising catfish since 2008. Jahya initiated his business by raising 50 catfishes. At the moment, he has three fishponds and raises 1,000 catfishes. It takes three months to raise the fish before selling them to the customer. His wife and the children are also involved in looking after them.

Currently, Jahya really wants to enlarge his business by purchasing catfish seeds and building up the pond. Unfortunately, he does not have enough capital to go through with this plan. Jahya then went to TLM and applied a loan amounting 4,500,000 IDR (Indonesia rupiah). He would like to utilize the loan for 2,000 more catfish seeds and building materials to build one more pond. His expectation is that the business could grow smoothly and bring good advantages for his family.
