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.
