Yosafat is running a business of selling cattle. Prior to selling the cattle, Yosafat raised them for one to three months in order to achieve a standard weight. Then he resells the cattle to the customers in the market. Yosafat has been engaged with the business since his childhood because of family tradition. The income generated from the business enables him to cover his family’s living expenditures.
Yosafat dreams of having more cattle to improve his income, which can guarantee his children’s education as well as meet his family's needs in the future. This is why he asked for a loan from Tanaoba Lais Manekat Foundation (TLM) of IDR 10,000,000. The loan will help him to purchase two more cattle to be fattened and resold.
