Rasmata's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!


A loan helped to buy 20 bundles of coloured weaving yarn, and save money to take care of her family.


Rasmata's story

Rasmata is a mother of seven children including two who go to school. She has two other people in her care.

Rasmata is a weaver — she has been making traditional quality pagnes (colourful fabrics) in her household in a surrounding district of the capital for more than 6 years. She has repaid her loans on time, and she repaid her first Kiva loan without any issues.

Rasmata is requesting a new loan to buy 20 bundles of coloured weaving yarn in order to weave lots of traditional pagnes, and satisfy customer demand. She intends to reinvest the profits back into her business, and save money to take care of her family.

Finally, she thanks Yikri and its partners for their support towards non-bankable entrepreneurs.
