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

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

Rumheni's story

Good day lenders! Meet one of KBMI’s clients, Rumheni. She is 47 years-old and a widow, with two daughters and one son. Rumheni runs a business of a food stall that sells breakfast food. She is the only breadwinner in her family. Her income is barely enough to provide for her basic needs. She would like to improve her living conditions and create a happy and healthy life for her children.

Rumheni has asked for a loan of 10,200,000 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 Rumheni will be able to repay the loan received.

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