Suka Damai Group's story

The Suka Damai group is composed of five women. They have own businesses that still need more capital to improve.

Sherly, a 31 year old woman (standing in the middle) wearing a white shirt is the representative of the Suka Damai group. Sherly has a business of selling cakes. Sherly said the income earned from the business is very helpful in supporting her husband, Immanuel, 37 as a handyman.

She took initiative running the business as they have three children who still under their protection as parents; they are Rigesty, 13, in the fifth grade of elementary school, Agnes, 4 and Calista, 8 months old.

Every morning, Sherly offers the products from door to door. She has been thinking to initiate another business which is selling kerosene at home as the cake business is always sold out at noon, so she still has time to sell kerosene.

She then joined in the Suka Damai Group and along with other women requested a loan totaling IDR 10,000,000. She has planned to buy 50 liters of kerosene to sell. Sherly and the other women are thankful for Kiva as a TLM partner that is willing to encouraged the group with the business loan.
