Santo's story

Santo is a 29-year-old carpenter and is married to Ermina, a 27-year-old lady. They are blessed with three children: Regina, 6, in kindergarten; Peter, 4 and Fajar, 1. In addition to working as a carpenter, Santo also runs another business renting a tractor to farmers. Santo has been running the business for two years. He has a plot of land so he desires to utilize it by planting various vegetables such as “kangkung”, mustard greens, spinach and tomatoes. He decided to run the new business as the income generated from tractor rental is unstable. Due to the lack of a water supply in his village, Santo plans to dig a well to irrigate his little farm. Therefore he is requesting a loan of IDR 5,000,000 from TLM. Santo wants to spend the loan to dig a well and to purchase a pump. Santo hopes that TLM will approve his loan application.
