Simeon has been running a kiosk business with his wife for 7 years. Simeon is also an employee at a store. His wife assists him by managing the kiosk business as he works at the store. They started the business by using their own capital to build the small impermanent kiosk. Day by day their kiosk business is growing, and they are so thankful for the 1st cycle loan they received from TLM as they grow their business.

Nowadays their kiosk has become a permanent kiosk with more stuff to sell. In order to add more stock for a Christmas sale, Simeon is applying for an individual loan in the amount of IDR 4,500,000. The loan will be spent on soft drinks, flours, sugar, etc. to be sold in their kiosk.
