A loan of $325 helped to repair her broken hemming machine, and to buy a box of chicks for her new poultry business.

Dessy's story

Dessy is a 35-year-old seamstress. She is married to Roni, age 40. She lives with her husband and their three children: Brian, 11, Jati, 9, and Abi, 6 years old. The children are all attending school.

Dessy has been running her sewing business since 2001, helping to support the family. Last year, she initiated a poultry business, using her own savings. She thinks that the poultry business can help her to meet the family's needs. In order to improve the poultry business, and to repair her hemming machine, which is broken, she applied for a loan from TLM in the amount of IDR 3,000,000. She plans to buy a box of chicks and to repair the broken hemming machine, with the loan funds. Dessy hopes that the businesses will run well, so she can repay the TLM loan and increase the income available for family needs.
