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


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


Sahani's story

Good day lenders! Meet one of KBMI’s clients, Sahani. She is 59 years old and married. She has been a trader for six years. Her husband has been working as a laborer in the Tangerang District for six years. Still, their income is barely enough to provide for their basic needs. They would like to improve their living conditions and create a happy and healthy life.

She has asked for a loan of 10,900,000 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 she will be able to repay the loan received.

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