Markus's story

Markus is a 48-year-old farmer who is living in Liliba Village. He started farming back in 1994. Besides farming, Markus also works as a builder to generate additional income for his family.

Markus is the father of three children, namely: Desy, who is 15 and studying in the first grade of Senior high school; George, who is 9 and studying in the third grade of elementary school; and Felix, who is aged 2. As the head of the household, Markus is responsible for the happiness of his family. He would do anything that he can for his family.

Markus plants mustard greens, 'kangkung' (leafy vegetable), peanuts and corn on his farm. As a farmer, Markus relies on the weather to succeed with his harvest. The erratic weather and limited capital have been a challenge for Markus as a farmer. Sometimes he has to suffer from failure at harvest time because of the bad weather, and he couldn’t replace the damaged plants.

Markus really wants to improve his business by purchasing more seeds and a water pump to support him in watering the plants. To do so, Markus is requesting a loan amounting to IDR 4,500,000 from TLM. He believes that the loan will bring a positive change to his business.
