David's story

David, who is 30-years old, went to school until eighth grade. He lives with his partner, who makes her living as a domestic servant in other homes. They have two daughters who live at home. Their 7-year old daughter goes to school.

Don David works as a security guard. He has been in this line of work for five years. Since he had completed his military service, it was easy for him to get a job in security. In addition to his security work, don David makes his living in agriculture planting basic grains. Before becoming a security guard, he always worked in agriculture. Don David travels far from work to home; it takes two hours by bus for him to get home from work.

The loan that don David is requesting is for setting up a small broiler chicken farm. He sees this as an alternative business that will generate income for him and allow him to get ahead financially. Specifically, he will purchase 100 chicks, two sacks of growth animal feed and two sacks of fattening animal feed. The loan will help him to earn a greater income and to have a better quality of life, along with his family. The idea of the farm is something don David has had in mind for a long time. However, because of a lack of resources, he hasn't been able to put his small chicken farm project into action.

In the future, don David plans to have a bigger farm, greater production and to be a large-scale family producer of broiler hens. He hopes that his daughters become respectable people who are able to complete advanced studies in school. Don David will use his earnings to invest further in his business by purchasing more chickens and expanding his sales area.
