Kasih Bunda Group's story

Kasih Bunda is a group led by Cornelia (whose hand is raised in the photo). She is a 34-year-old teacher of elementary school students. The group name means “Mother’s love” in English. She is married and has a toddler.

To earn more income, Cornelia sells meatballs, called Salome. She has been involved in this business for the last four months. Using a table to display the product, she runs the business every day in front of her house, after school. She usually spends money of IDR 600,000 per week to buy the ingredients, such as six kilograms of beef, wheat, spices, peanuts, and chilis for spicy sauce. This is a profitable business and enables her to support her husband, Melkianus, 38, a contract employee, in meeting the family's daily needs.

Cornelia has planned to design a simple cart for the business purpose. To make it happen, she needs to buy the materials, such as wooden boards, zinc, tires, nails, etcetera. With the cart she plans to sell her products from door to door. Fortunately, five women who live near her house need a loan for their own businesses and interests. Cornelia then formed the Kasih Bunda group. The group has requested a loan of IDR 3,000,000 for each member from Kiva, TLM’s partner. They are sure the loan from Kiva – TLM will empower them in improving their businesses and other interests.
