She felt better when she applied for her first loan, and she is applying for her second loan of $1,000. She will buy some additional supplies to keep in her store such as soft drinks (Coca-Cola, Fanta, Sprite, Sagiko), hard drinks, beer, water, noodles, coffee, sugar, salts, eggs, body lotion and biscuits. She is happy with TRM (Tuba Rai Metin) because it offers loans to poor people. Her husband is a teacher.
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.
