Maria's story

Maria is a 51-year-old widow. She has a food stall business which enables her to cover her family needs. She has four children; two of the children have graduated from school, while the other two are still attending school. Maria operates the business in front of a high school. Her hospitality and kindness make the students happy to come over. Moreover, she sells meatballs, which are the students’ favorite food. She also provides cold beverages at her stall.

Maria is thinking of enlarging the business place, therefore she requested loan of 12,000,000 IDR (Indonesian rupiah) from TLM. She would like to use the loan to buy building materials and also to add more menu items, like “soto ayam” (made of cabbage mixed with noodles, boiled egg and chicken) and also “mie ayam,” commonly known as chicken noodle. Maria is hoping that she will be more successful in running the business.
