A loan of $475 helped to buy more fish to sell, i.e., sardines and yellow fin tuna, and to renovate his house.

Bernabas's story

Bernabas is one of several TLM clients funded by Kiva lenders in August 2011 when he received a loan of IDR 3,000,000 to buy more fish to sell. Prior to getting the loan, Bernabas was only able to generate an income of between IDR 250,000 and 400,000 per day, but after securing the loan, he was able to generate a daily income of between IDR 400,000 and 600,000. With the improvement in his business, Barnabas was able to fully repay his loan in July 2012.

Barnabas has a desire to keep improving his business and is therefore requesting a loan of IDR 4,500,000 to buy more stocks of sardines and yellow fin tuna. He would also like to use part of the loan for his home renovation.
