Adolfina is a 53-year-old woman and is married to Samuel, who is 56 years old. They have six children between the ages of 27 and 14 years old. The children's names are: Septi, Nehemia, Oba, Jonas, Denny and Lena. Adolfina owns a coconut oil production business. The coconuts are taken from her farm and are processed to become coconut oil. The oil is then sold at the local market in her village; Friday is market day. She has to travel 25 kilometers to reach the market. Adolfina has been running the business for more than 10 years. The business is her main source of income as it enables her to cover her family's living costs and her children's school expenses.

At the moment, Adolfina has received many coconut oil orders but unfortunately she does not have a coconut rasping machine to speed up the production process. Adolfina has always produced the coconut oil by using traditional tools and it takes time to produce the oil. Therefore, Adolfina is requesting a loan of IDR5,000,000 to buy a new coconut rasping machine.
