Delinda was a teacher, but since the school was far from her residence, she started her own business instead. In 2010, she decided to use her knowledge of baking and cooking to support her family by running a catering business. She also receives orders for snacks such as cookies, chips, cheese sticks, etc., from her customers, and for selling at stalls in the neighborhood.
Delinda sees that the business has good opportunity to grow bigger in the future that is why she plans to expand the business, unfortunately she has limited capital and of course she needs more capital to go through. This situation led her to propose a loan from TLM of amounting IDR 4.500.000. This loan would enable her to purchase rice, cooking ingredients, vegetables, cooking oil, kerosene and also to help her start a business of selling mobile phone credit (known as 'pulsa'). She hopes that the business will run well so it will enable her to improve her income as well as to repay the loan to TLM on time.
