In the photo posted, Ajat stands on the left, while Arya, Ruma's Field Officer, is on the right.

Ajat runs a small stall which sells mobile phone airtime credits. Recently, he has been working as a house guard/security guard. His wife is a housewife, and they have three persons living in their house.

Ajat joined Ruma in May 2012 because he trusts Ruma and wanted to explore other business opportunities in selling mobile phone airtime credits. He still feels really excited to expand his business of selling mobile phone airtime credits and servicing bill payments for customers.

For the last month, he has had around $90/day in sales on average (just mobile phone airtime credit sales). As the business continues, he needs a loan of more working capital in order to be able to do transactions on weekends.

Additional Information

More information about this loan


Working capital loans enable credit-worthy borrowers to reach their full sales potential. Every agent maintains a balance of electronic credit with Ruma to process transactions. But if this balance is zero and no Ruma field officers are available to replenish it, an agent may miss out on sales. Working capital loans solve this problem by serving as a line of credit that agents can repay as needed during the loan term, ensuring that they don't lose potential income. PT Ruma will progressively disburse the amount posted on Kiva based on the agent's working capital needs, ensuring that no potential income is lost. By funding this loan, you are empowering urban and rural entrepreneurs.
