Meny, a 36-year-old lady, is married to Benedictus, a 39-year-old taxi driver. They have four children. Noventio is 11 years old and in the first grade of senior high school. Jean is 9 years old and Troy is 8 years old and both are at the elementary school. The youngest, Febry, is 5 years old and not at school yet.

Meny sells cooked vegetables (cassava leaves, kangkung and beans), tofu and “tempe” (soybean cake). She also sells a kind of beverage called “es cendol” (consisting of ice, coconut milk, palm sugar and jelly). She operates her business in front of her house.

Meny usually wakes up early in the morning to cook and to prepare the ingredients for “cendol” to be sold. Meny runs this business because she wants to help her husband in supporting their family since his income is unstable and dependent on how many customers hire the taxi.

Meny would like to sell more food such as meat, fish and snacks. Therefore, Meny is requesting a loan of IDR 5,000,000 from TLM to buy those foods to sell. She is expecting that TLM is willing to provide a loan for her business improvement.
