Nimrod is a 35-year-old man who is married to Erin and has five children: Yeni, who is ten and in grade four; Yohana who is nine and in the second grade; Adeputra, seven, who is in grade one; and Riniati and Imanuel who are just five and three.

In addition to being a laborer, Nimrod and his wife also sell “Cucur”, traditional cakes which are made of melted sugar. The problem the couple face is that they don't have a vehicle to distribute the cakes around their native island of Sabu.

Nimrod would like to buy a motorbike and he has applied for a loan from TLM for the amount of 7,000,000 Indonesian rupiahs (IDR) to purchase a second-hand one. He will use the motorbike to distribute cakes to schools and also offer a motorbike taxi service on the island. Nimrod hopes this venture will help provide his children with a brighter future.
