Aripin
Aripin lives north of Bogor, about two hours from Jakarta. He manages a small shop selling snacks and mobile phone airtime credit. Aripin is married and lives with four persons in the family home.

Aripin joined Ruma one month ago because he was interested in selling mobile phone airtime credit. With assistance and support from Ruma’s staff, Aripin sees improvements in his shop. For the last month, he has earned an average of $13 - $14 per day in mobile phone airtime credit sales.

He hopes to get a Kiva loan as working capital to process more transactions on the weekends. His goal for his business is to expand and have more new business in the future.

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.
