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


Aminah's story

Good day lenders! Meet one of KBMI’s clients, Aminah. She is 38 years old and married with two daughters. Aminah has been a food trader for 10 years. Her husband has been working as a laborer in the Lebak District for 20 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 for their children.

Aminah 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 Aminah will be able to repay the loan received.

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