The TLM Foundation administers projects that aim to improve the lives of poor people in Nusa Tenggara Timor. As well as this, the Foundation has also founded several other business units in order to better achieve its goals.
The TLM Saving and Loan Cooperative and the Consumer Cooperative encourage saving and investment amongst middle and low income people in East Nusa Tenggara. Ordinary residents become members by saving money with the Cooperatives. At the end of each year, profits from the cooperatives are distributed amongst the members.
The TLM Rural Bank is a for profit bank with branches across East Nusa Tenggara. A portion of the bank’s profits are invested into TLM Foundation’s community focused projects.
