A loan of $500 helped to purchase chicks and feed for them.


Magdalena's story

Magdalena, 42, is married to Markus, 44. From the marriage she has four children. They are: Lexy, 22, and Lydia, 19, both attending University, Nushin, 11, and Ishak, 8, both at elementary school.

Magdalena owns a kiosk business selling nine daily basic needs items, cigarettes and some snacks. Her business has been running for four years. Magdalena operates the business to assist her husband in generating more income as her husband’s income as a farmer is insufficient to cover their daily living expenses.

Magdalene was thinking to try another business by raising chickens but she does not have money to do so. Fortunately, she met a Field Officer and got an explanation of TLM’s Individual Lending Program. She thought this is a good opportunity for her to initiate a new business. She then submitted the loan application to TLM and requesting a loan amounting to IDR 4,500,000 from TLM. She plans to spend the loan on chicks and feed for them. She is expecting that TLM will approve her loan application soon.
