Simeon is a shop-keeper with a limited income. He absolutely knows that it’s going to be hard if he only relies on the income from being a shop-keeper. Therefore, besides working as a shop-keeper, Simeon built a small kiosk in front of his house in 2009.

Simeon would like to improve the business by enlarging the kiosk building. To enable him to implement his plan, Simeon then applied for individual loan amounting to IDR 4,500,000 from TLM. He plans to spend the loan on building materials and more stock for his kiosk including: sugar, snacks, coffee, tea, cigarettes, shampoo, umbrellas, etc. He hopes that the business will grow well.
