Helena's story

Helena, 58 years old. is a widow and the mother of 4 children: Bertha, 28; Mex, 26; Olvianus, 24; Novita, 18. The three oldest children are working and the youngest is in the third grade of senior high school. Helena relies on her husband’s pension to meet her family's needs but it is often insufficient. She therefore initiated a small business selling cakes and boiled corn at a school located near to her house. The little income generated from the business enables her to pay for her daughter's school expenses. Helena also operates a pig breeding business, but she doesn’t have enough money to provide pig feed, vitamins and vaccines. Therefore, she is requesting a loan of IDR 4,500,000 to pay for her business needs. Helena also plans to spend some of the money on her daughter’s school fees.
