Suzana, 40, is a mother of 5 children whose ages are between 18 and 5, all of them are attending school. She owns a kiosk business selling daily necessities such as instant noodles, shampoo, detergent, salt, mosquito coils, candy, and snacks. Although Suzana’s income is small to provide for her daily needs, she has to be satisfied with what she can achieve.

Suzana really wanted to improve the business but unfortunately she did not have the capital to do so. She then went to the TLM office and requested a loan around IDR. 3,000,000. The loan enabled her to add more stock such as sugar, coffee, instant noodles, soap, detergent, oil, eggs, etc. She now hopes that the business can improve her family’s income and enable her to fulfill the children's schooling expenses. In addition, she hopes that she can save a small amount of the profit to refurbish her house.
