Merci is 28 years old and married with two children, William and Shiren. William (7yrs) is attending 2nd grade and Shiren (4yrs) is attending kindergarten. Two years ago, Merci bought a used minivan (called “bemo”) for public transportation. In addition, she also sells petrol (gasoline) near the roadside. These businesses help her to generate income for her family.

At the moment, Merci cannot produce any income from the minivan as it is broken and in need of repair. Therefore, Merci has requested a loan from TLM in the amount of IDR 3,500,000. Merci really hopes that the loan assistance will help her to cover the entire cost of repairs and to buy more petrol to sell.
