Euis is 48 years old, married and has 4 children. She has had a business of electronic goods and clothes since 2005, and from its income she could pay for school for her children and even courses outside school hours.
Euis has used her current loan of 4,000,000 Indonesian rupiah to open a new business that sells drinks like coke and snacks like chiki, as well as renting playstations.
Last month from her savings, she could afford for her daughter to marry, and now she wants to invest to be able to have a shop for each of her children to finance their own lives.
