Habel's story

Habel is a 55-year-old man, and married to Selfiana, a 49-year-old woman. They have 7 children, namely: Arianto, 25, is working as an Ojek (motorcycle taxi driver); Sriyanti, 19, fresh graduated from senior high school; Andri, 18, and Titin, 17, are both senior high school students; Ongki, 15, and Yuniati, 11, are elementary school students and the last one is Marfin, 4.

To finance his family's needs, Habel runs a business selling gasoline. He has been running this business for years. He started this business by using his own capital of IDR 1,500,000 to buy 1 drum of gasoline, 1 drum of diesel fuel and 1 drum of kerosene and send them to Rote Island. The average income he generated from this business amounted to about IDR 150,000 – 250,000 per day.

In order to earn more income, he also works as a laborer at a port near his house. He intends to improve his business. Due to lacking enough money to do so, he has requested an individual loan from TLM of IDR 4,500,000. The loan will be spent on more gasoline and kerosene. He hopes the improvement of this business will enable him to provide a better life for his family.
