Rahmat's story

Rahmat is a 46-year-old man and married. He has three children: 1. Jamilaah, 22 (Dropped out of Junior high school as she suffered from an illness); 2. Siti, 18 (dropped out of Senior High School and afterward joined Indonesian worker labors in Malaysia); 3. Halimah, 16, studying in the second grade of Senior high school.

Rahmat only attended school up to junior high school level. His parents could not afford to send him to the higher level of education. After he left school, Rahmat decided to become a fisherman until he got married and had children. He has a small boat to support him when he goes fishing every day (except in bad weather). When the weather is good, Rahmat is able to produce IDR 100,000 to 150,000 a day. In the bad weather, Rahmat is only able to produce less than IDR 50,000 a day.

Rahmat would like to generate more income by running a kiosk business which provides various products, i.e., sugar, coffee, frying oil, snacks and cigarettes; in addition he would also like to buy four more trawls. Therefore, he is requesting a loan from TLM amounting to IDR 3,000,000 to implement his plan.
