A loan of $500 helped to buy more stock for his kiosk e.g., snacks, coffee, tea, etc., and also to buy more fish to sell.


Melkianus's story

Melkianus is a 38-year-man. He has a son, Kristian, 3 years old. Melkianus generates income by being a fishmonger. He usually sells fish at the daily market from 5 a.m. to 9 a.m. If the fish are not sold out at the market, he sells them around his village in the afternoon. Besides selling fish, Melkianus also sells daily basic needs e.g., instant noodles, instant spices, snacks, coffee, and tea at his house. He displays these things in an old cupboard. Melkianus really wants to improve his business but unfortunately he doesn’t have enough capital to do so. He requested a loan of IDR 4,500,000 from TLM to be spent on various kiosk products as well as more fish to sell. Melkianus hopes that his business will improve after he gets the loan assistance.
