Maraimpun lives north of Bogor, a semi-urban area about two hours from Jakarta. Maraimpun is married and lives with more than six persons in the family home.

Maraimpun began working with Ruma one month ago because he was interested in the income from selling mobile airtime. He feels really excited to expand his business in selling mobile phone airtime credits and servicing bill payments. For the last month, he has around $8 - 9 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

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.
