Prior to engaging in a kiosk business, Makabius worked as a motor taxi driver. He sometimes sells crops in the traditional market to earn extra income.
The profit from running these businesses has enabled Makabius to initiate a kiosk business. Recently, Makabius experienced little improvement on his kiosk business, and it makes him intend to add more goods and also petrol to meet the needs of his customers.
Makabius then applied for a loan from TLM for IDR 5,000,000 to be spent on kiosk stock such as instant noodles, coffee, eggs, candies, cigarettes, shampoo, snacks, and also petrol.
