Mukiyati has owned a catering business since 2003. Twice a week, she receives orders from some agencies to provide lunch or snacks for office meetings or another occasion. Her business is running well and the income generated is quite good enough to meet her household needs.
Later on, Mukiyati wants to initiate a food stall where she could sell more foods, not just those based on orders. She realizes that the limitation of capital she has could not help her to implement her dream. Therefore, she applied for a loan from TLM of IDR 4,500,000. This loan would allow her to buy some equipment such as a stove, a cooking pot and a frying pan, dozens of plates, spoons and glasses, and also basic ingredients such as rice, vegetables and others.
