Iyam's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support


A loan helped to build a water pump for her family.


Iyam's story

Good day lenders! Meet one of KBMI’s clients, Iyam. She is 55 years old and widowed with two daughters. Iyam has been a food trader for two years. She is the only breadwinner in the family. Her income is barely enough to provide for her basic needs. She would like to improve her living conditions and create a happy and healthy life for her children.

Iyam has asked for a loan of 8,800,000 Indonesian rupiahs (IDR) from KBMI. This loan will be used to build a water pump for her family. Today her family has no access to a water source in their home and must rely on the river for bathing. Her family income is insufficient to build a water source, but Iyam will be able to repay the loan received.

She and her family want to live a healthy life with clean water. Iyam is very grateful for the opportunity and wants to thank all lenders.
