Vinsensius is a 54-year-old farmer. He has four children: Novalia, 24, who is married; Febrianus, 21, and Paulus, 19, who are both working in Jakarta; and Kristia, 12, who is attending the first grade of junior high school.

Just like many other farmers, Vinsensius relies on the season to cultivate his plants. Therefore, the income generated from farming is unstable. To overcome the lack of income during the dry season, Vinsensius also runs a pig-breeding business.

Vinsensius is seeking to have more adult pigs to be raised in order to produce piglets to sell. Therefore, he has requested a loan of IDR 7,500,000 from TLM to buy four adult pigs, food and additional zinc to initiate the pig stall.
