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

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

Sarwinah's story

Good day lenders! Meet one of KBMI’s clients, Sarwinah. She is 44 years old and married with two daughters and two sons. Sarwinah has been an entrepreneur for four years. Her husband has been working as an entrepreneur in the Tangerang District for four 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.

Sarwinah has asked for a loan of 8,300,000 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 Sarwinah will be able to repay the loan received.

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