Yuheni's story

Yuheni is a 34-year-old widow. She has been blessed with 4 children. They are Yemima (12), Yabes (10), Yusak (8) and Cuanwi (3). The older 3 attend school. Yuheni is an entrepreneur. She sells cakes and sweet ice around her residence and at a nearby school. She makes donuts, "onde-onde" (traditional cakes made of rasped cassava and palm sugar), fried bananas, etc.

As a single parent, Yuheni keeps working hard to be able to cover her family's needs by producing cakes and ice regularly. Actually, she really wants to increase the number of cakes and ice that she sells, but she doesn't have enough capital to do so. Yuheni was introduced to TLM's lending program by a loan officer. Yuheni became interested in the program offered and requested a loan amounting to 5,000,000 IDR from TLM in order to purchase basic ingredients, e.g., sugar and wheat flour in bulk, cassava, bananas and several containers in which to put the cakes.
