Dedeh's story

Dedeh is a forty-seven-year-old-lady and is married to Wahono, a fifty-nine year old man. Dedeh runs a business selling yellow rice, while Wahono runs a furniture business; Dedeh and husband are blessed with two children, namely: Julyada, twenty-three years old, who is a university student; Fajar, seven years old, who is attending second grade of elementary school.

Dedeh sells yellow rice in front of her house. She operates the business every day from 6 am to 11 am. The business has been running for more than four years and she has many customers. To ease her in serving the customers, Dedeh employs one person to assist her in cooking and selling yellow rice. Fried fish and chicken, egg, noodles, and “sambal” (chili) are the side dishes for the yellow rice. The income from the business is utilized to help her husband meet the living costs.

At the moment, Dedeh is able to sell up to seven kilograms of rice in a day. She needs more capital to buy more food and spices but her money is insufficient due to the expenses of her daughter in the university, so she requested a loan of IDR 4,500,000 from TLM to purchase extra rice, eggs, and kitchen equipment i.e. a stove and frying pan. She is looking forward to seeing improvement in her business.
