Merdeka Utara 2 Group's story

Tanisem has two children, both of whom are school-age. She is married to a brick layer with an uncertain income. In order to supplement her husband's income, she produces various kinds of cake and fried snacks. Every morning, she starts making cakes at 1 AM until midday. She then sells her products in the nearby market. She is skillful in producing various kinds of traditional cakes. Tanisem will use this loan to buy ingredients (eggs, flour, butter, sugar) for her cakes and fried snacks. The additional income from the business will be spent on her children's school fees and also to pay their rent. She already has her own customers so competition is not a challenge for her; however, the seasonal floods are. Since she lives in a densely populated area near the river bank, floods might come 3-4 times a year.

Her goal is to be able to send her son to the maritime academy.
