Orias's story

Orias, 37, is married and has 5 children: Ameria, 10; Meyfira, 8; Angelica, 6; all attending elementary school; Farel, 4 and Zefanya, 3 months old. Orias is a truck driver who also operates a kiosk business in front of his house in order to generate extra income. In his kiosk, Orias provides daily basic needs and mobile phone recharges. His wife assists him in looking after the kiosk when he is away at work.

Orias is planning to add more stock to his kiosk as half of his business income has been used to purchase a new display window and a small cool box to store soft drinks. Orias went to TLM and applied for a loan of IDR 4,500,000. He would like to purchase more kiosk items such as instant noodles, snacks, frying oil, bath soap, soft drinks, mosquito coils, detergents, shampoo, etc.
