A loan of $550 helped to hire a rice field to cultivate.

Sintus's story

Sintus is a 35-year-old man and married to Febi, a 30-year-old lady. They have three kids: Juionto, 9, Seleste, 7, both still at primary school and Tuti, 5, not at school yet.

Sintus makes a living by being a farmer. His farmland is located about 3 km from his residence. He plants lettuce and cabbage on the farm. The income generated from his own farm is insufficient to fully cover his family needs. Therefore, he also assists other farmers in cultivating their farms and gets paid from the profit.

Sintus is planning to hire a rice field to cultivate but he doesn’t have money to do so. He then met TLM’s field officer who informed him of TLM’s lending program. He is interested in joining the individual lending program and is requesting a loan amounting to IDR 5,000,000. He wants to hire the rice field to be cultivated for 5 years. He really hopes that TLM will approve his loan application, so he will be able to improve his family's life.
