Esly usually operates her kiosk from 6 a.m. until 9 p.m. She sells variety of snack items, noodles, sugar, cigarettes, detergent, biscuits, soap and many other household needs. She started her kiosk business by using her own money as business capital. Her money just enabled her to buy a variety of small items. She was only able to generate a meager income from her kiosk.
Esly joined TLM’s small group lending program for two loan cycles. All loan money was used to add more items to her kiosk. She can generate a better income from the improved business stock. However, she still wants to expand her kiosk by selling basic household needs such as rice, kerosene and gasoline that are not available at her kiosk at the moment. For that reason, she is requesting an individual loan amounting to IDR 3,000,000 from TLM. She definitely believes that loan will help her to improve her business.
