Dikson's story

Dikson is a 42-year-old man who is running a “motor-taxi” business. Dikson lives with his wife and two children in a modest house. The children are Jeanet, aged 17 years, and Richard, who is 15. Both attend school.

Besides running the motor-taxi business, Dikson also runs a billiard business. He realizes that both of his children will have a huge cost for school, while his motor-taxi business can only provide food for his family. The income from his billiard business is also unstable. These situations sometimes make him distressed and he tries hard to find another way to generate additional income.

Dikson decided to go to a cooperative to get a loan. He wanted to buy a tent and chairs to rent out. The cooperative offers an attractive package, but the interest remains high. Dikson then heard about TLM's program from the field officer and got interested in joining the individual program. He is requesting a loan amounting to IDR 10,000,000. He plans to use the loan to develop his leasing business. He expects the loan could help him in improving his business and he can provide easy access to a tent and chairs for the community around his village when they have a party or other events.
