A loan of $975 helped to purchase fodder and pay her son's school fee.


Marselina's story

Marselina is a 55-year-old woman who is married to Daniel, a 55-year-old man. They have been blessed with four sons: Victor, a 30-year-old policeman; Frangky, a 25-year-old entrepreneur; James, a 23-year-old college student; and Mario, a 20-year-old who graduated from high school.

Marselina initiated a pig-breeding business in 2009. Nowadays, she has three pigs. These pigs bear three times a year, and commonly a pig brings forth 10-12 piglets per birthing. Usually she sells the piglets in the amount of 750,000 IDR (Indonesian rupiah) each. The income from the business enables her to support the needs of her family, as her husband has gone through an early retirement because of sickness.

At the moment, Marselina desires to raise more piglets, which means that she needs more stock of fodder. Her lack of money has led her to ask for an individual loan from TLM in amount of 10,000,000 IDR. The loan will be spent on the fodder, and to pay her son's school fee. She hopes that the loan will help her to be successful in her business.
