Yohana's story

Yohana, a 36-year-old lady who is married to Edy, a 38-year-old man, is the mother of four children: Beny, 10, in the fourth grade of Elementary School; Evy, 7, in the second grade of Elementary School; Lena, 3 and Feny, 1 year old. The family lives in a very simple house comprised of a zinc roof, ground floor and palm tree branches.



Eight years ago, with a small amount of capital from her husband, Yohana started a small kiosk business selling goods such as noodles, sugar, coffee, snacks, cigarettes, detergent, soap, etc. She is grateful that the income generated from this business can assist her husband in meeting their daily needs.



Yohana is planning to improve her business by adding more products, and so is requesting a loan of IDR 5,000,000 to purchase items such as rice, kerosene, sugar, coffee, wheat flour, eggs, cigarettes, etc. She has repaid all previous loans from TLM’s Group Lending Program, and really hopes that TLM will continue to support her efforts to improve her business.
