Betania Iv-A Group's story

Yustinus T. leads a group of 10 people which is named Betania IV-A. He is aged 44 years and married to Naema T., a 40-year-old lady. Both Yustinus and Naema have been living in Nekmese Village for years, since they were children. This village is situated 55 km from Kupang City, and it takes about two and a half hours' ride to get into the village from Kupang City. The road to this village is bumpy and hasn’t been asphalted yet. Most of the community in this village relies on the agricultural sector to generate money to support their lives, including Yustinus and the group members of Betania IV-A.



In Nekmese Village, Yustinus finances his family by farming. His marriage has been blessed with 2 children, aged 9 to 14 years; they are Bifeni and Yosafat. As a farmer, Yustinus is only able to generate income in a small amount. The income is unstable, depending on the season and crops. To generate money, Yustinus usually sells bananas and areca nut in the market. His wife also helps him to generate money by selling vegetables. The hardship that Yustinus faces in financing his family motivates him to find another alternative to support his family life. This is the reason why Yustinus is intereseted in joining TLM Cattle Fattening Program.



Yustinus is requesting a loan amounting to IDR 3,200,000 from TLM to buy cattle to be fattened over a 12 month period. The other members of this group are also requesting loans to buy cattle to be fattened. They hope that the cattle fattening program will help them in improving their lives.

In this group: Yustinus, Melkias, Metusalak, Napoleon, Obet, Oktovianus, Sakarias, Stefanus, Titus, Yulius
