Yusak's story

Yusak is a 53-year-old man who runs a kiosk business. He is married to Naomi, a weaver. Yusak has three children: Yanto, 28, is attending university; Jemri, 13, is attending third grade of elementary school; and Aplonia, 12, is attending second grade of elementary school. Yusak has been engaged in his business for six years. The business is the only source of income that Yusak and his family are depending on. Yusak’s business place resides precisely in front of a school building that allows him to get many customers. There are some goods that he provides in his kiosk, including stationery, snacks, and also daily basic needs. In this new academic year, the income from his kiosk business is spent to pay for his child's college fees. Therefore, he needs more capital to renew his kiosk stocks. He proposed a loan from Tanaoba Lais Manekat Foundation (TLM), amounting to IDR 5,000,000 to pay for kiosk stocks, such as biscuits, pencils, pens, books, instant noodles, coffee, and sugar.
