Betania 1A Group's story

Apner N. is forty-two years old. He leads a group of 10 people, which is called Betania 1a Group. He lives in Nekmese - Naet, Kupang District, East Nusa Tenggara Province in Indonesia. The income source of the community in Nekmese Naet village is the agricultural sector. To earn money, Apner usually sells bananas, cucumbers, vegetables, cassavas, corns and coconuts in the traditional market as well as the markets in Kupang City, but he feels that the income that he earns is not enough to meet his family needs. Apner is a married man and has 4 children who are: Ricki N. 15 years old - in Junior High School Grade 3; Frengki N. 13 years old - in Elementary School Grade 6; Nonci N. 11 years old who has suffered from deafness since she was born. Apner can not send her to school because there is no school for deaf people in this village. And the last one is Reni N. 5 years old – who studies in the Kindergarten.

As a farmer, Apner wants to improve his income by running another business. He is interested in the cattle fattening program because it can generate a large profit. Apner is requesting Rp. 3,300,000 to buy cattle to be fattened. The same as Apner, the other group members are also requesting loans from TLM to buy cattle to be fattened over the 12 month period. They will repay the initial cost of the cattle and get the profit after selling the cattle.

Note: The group picture was taken separately because 4 members of this group are involved in building the church in their village. Yurita also wasn't present when the group picture was taken, so her husband replaced her in the group picture.

In this group: Apner, Bonifasius, Maklon, Frengki, Agustinus, Gerson, Yurita*, Zet, Misraim, Lorensius
