Safudin, 28, is a carpenter and married to Ewa, 26. They moved from Sulawesi to West Timor seven years ago. From their marriage, they are blessed with three children: Rey, 8, in the third grade of primary school, Ramadhan, 5, and Rendra, 3.

Safudin sells ready-made wood for building material. He started the business two years ago. Prior to running this business, Safudin worked as a carpenter in a furniture workshop for three years. Equipped with skill and experience from his previous employer, Safudin initiated his own business using his savings. The income generated from the business depends on the amount of ready-made wood ordered by customers.

In running the business, Safudin sometimes faces challenges such as the increasing price of wood from the supplier and his limited amount of equipment. Based on this situation, Safudin requires a loan to improve his current business. He is requesting a loan of 5,000,000 IDR from TLM to purchase one cubic of timber, plane wood and a ripsaw. Safudin expects that TLM will approve his loan application.
