Yermi (age 41) is married and blessed with a beautiful daughter named Ivanna (age 9), who is in the third grade of elementary school. Yermi is a hardworking and kind father. Yermi has been running a food stall that sells local food such as Nabas and RW, which are common foods in the area. The business is located in front of his house and close to the main road. He usually operates the business from 6 pm to 11 pm and gets between 15 and 25 customers in a day.

Yermi realized that he could only improve the business by offering more menu items and beverages, but the limitation on business capital has prevented his dream. Yermi went to TLM to ask for a loan. He is requesting a loan amounting to IDR 10,000,000, which he will use for buying business materials and equipment such as pork, a cooler box, a rice cooker, a juicer, and additional cooking ingredients. Yermi is optimistic that the loan from TLM will make a difference to his business.
