Siprianus's story

Siprianus is a 50 year-old man and is married to Yuliana, a 40-year-old lady. They have five children: Anus, 20, a university student; Tika, 16, in the 2nd grade of Senior High School; Tari, 15, in the 1st grade of Senior High School, Gius, in the 4th grade of Elementary School; and Nicen, 4.

Siprianus owns a kiosk that sells household items such as sugar, coffee, detergent, cigarettes, bath soap, mosquito coils, snacks and soft drinks. He has been running the business for more than 10 years, using his own capital. This business is really vital to Siprianus as it enables him to cover his family's living expenses and the children's school fees.

The increase of market prices and demand by customers for more stock led Siprianus to seek more money to buy various items. He requested a loan amounting to IDR 4,500,000 from TLM. Siprianus plans to spend the loan on petrol, cigarettes, more snacks and soft drinks.
