Fransisca
Francisca is 23 years and she is married and has four children. She has a kiosk to generate income for her family. She has been thinking how to run a big business but she does not have enough working capital. She feels better now that she has applied for her first loan of $700. She will buy some additional supplies to keep in her store such as petrol & diesel. She is happy with TRM (Tuba Rai Metin) that offers loans to poor people.

Additional Information

More information about this loan

This loan is part of TRM’s effort to reach microentrepreneurs in East Timor, a region suffering from a deeply underdeveloped financial sector. Since its independence in 2002, East Timor has struggled with internal tensions which led to the quasi disappearance of its financial system. As of 2012, TRM is one of only two MFIs operating in East Timor trying to respond to the needs of thousands of microentrepreneurs. This loan provides underserved borrowers with critical capital to sustain their existing businesses.

The organization provides credit, savings and micro-insurance services to more than 7,000 clients. Its goal is to extend its reach into even more remote regions through branchless banking services.
