Rinawati has a kiosk in front of her house in which she sells some kinds of instant drinks. She started her business 1 year ago. At first, she only sold some sachets, but now she can sell almost 1200 sachets a week. From this income she can pay for electricity, school fees, and her family's daily needs.
Rinawati and the other members of the Pianika group are requesting financial support from VisionFund Indonesia for the second time so that they can increase their working capital. Rinawati will use it to buy items like chocolate chips, sugar, cheese, and cookies to sell in addition to her instant drinks. She has a dream to see her child work in the embassy.
