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

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

Sumiyati's story

Good day, lenders! Meet one of KBMI’s clients, Sumiyati. She is 34 years old and married with one daughter and one son. Sumiyati is a housewife who takes care of her family. Her husband has been working as a daily worker in the Serang District for twelve years. Her husband is the only breadwinner in the family. 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 for their children.

Sumiyati has asked for a loan of 6,300,000 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 Sumiyati will be able to repay the loan received.

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