Tirta
Tirta runs a small stall where he sells mobile phone airtime credits. He lives in Lebak, a semi-urban area about three hours from Jakarta. Tirta is single and lives with four persons in the family home.

Tirta began working with Ruma six months ago because he was interested in selling mobile airtime. He feels really excited to expand his business in selling mobile phone airtime credits. For the last three months, he has had around $101 per day in sales on average (just mobile phone airtime credit sales).

As the business continues to run, he hopes to get a Kiva loan as working capital in order to do more 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.
 
 

About PT Ruma

PT Ruma's core business is not microfinance. Accordingly, there is some additional risk for lenders as this Field Partner expands its business model to include lending. Because PT Ruma’s business model differs from standard microfinance models, it is not assigned a risk rating on Kiva.
