As a fisherman, Abdurrahman goes to sea to catch fish and sells them to the big buyer. He has a speciality in selling fish: He only sells ornamental fish and lobster.
Abdurrahman wants to increase his business. He wants to directly sell the fish and lobster to the city to get a higher price. He needs a loan to make it. He borrowed 5,000,000 IDR (Indonesian rupiah) to purchase more ornamental fish and lobsters. Besides purchasing ornamental fish and lobsters, the loan will also be used to fix his boat.
He hopes his plan to sell directly to the city to get a higher price will work and he can earn a satisfactory profit. Abdurrahman has a dream to buy a car when he has enough money to make it easier to distribute the fish and lobsters to the city.
