Tnaomat B2 Group
In this Group: Olimpas, Benyamin, Atrianus, Noh, Thobias, Ester, Elisabeth, Matelda
Tnaomat B2 is a group of eight people in Naiotel Village, Kupang District of East Nusa Tenggara Province. Naiotel Village is far away from crowded Kupang City. It is situated about 30 km and it takes about 3 hours to reach the village from Kupang City. This village can be categorized as a remote village. Most people in the village support their families by farming, raising goats, pigs and chickens. The condition of the road is bumpy and stony so it is difficult to reach the village.

Tnaomat B2 is led by Olimpas B. - a 43-year-old farmer. He is married and has four children. They are married and live separate from Olimpas and his wife. Olimpas was born and grew up in Naiotel Village. In order to fulfill his family's daily needs, Olimpas works as a farmer. He has a big farm to plant vegetables, corn, beans, tomatoes and chilies but in the dry season, Olimpas faces difficulty in watering his plants. He has to walk for about 1 km to reach the river in order to fetch water.

In the dry season, people in this village, including Olimpas, usually generate income by digging manganese so they can support their families. They sell the manganese at IDR 1,100/ kg.

Olimpas starts to find manganese in the morning and works until the evening. He works as a manganese seeker in the dry season while waiting for the rainy season to cultivate his farm. Olimpas’s wife always stores up corn when it's harvest time because they usually consume it in the dry season when rice is expensive for them to buy.

Olimpas saw some people who live close to his house were able improve their lives by fattening cattle to be sold. They can renovate their houses and finance their children's school fees up to High School. Olimpas then was interested to join the Cattle Fattening Program as he wants to improve his family's lives. Olimpas formed a group which is called Tnaomat B Group. Olimpas is requesting a loan amounting to IDR 3,400,000 to buy calves to be fattened for 12 months. The other group members are also requesting a loan as they want to improve their living standard.

Note: When the group picture was taken, Benyamin and Atrianus were replaced by their family members.
