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

A loan helped buy thread for looms and dye, and save money to take care of his family.

Rasmata's story

Rasmata is the mother of four children, two of whom go to school. She is a weaver. She has been weaving traditional quality fabric at home in a district on the outskirts of the capital for more than eight years.

Rasmata is in her ninth loan cycle with the IMF YIKRI and has paid off her first Kiva loan. She applied for a loan to buy weaving thread and dye to weave many traditional fabrics to meet the demand of her customers. She plans to use her profits to reinvest in her business and save to take care of her family. She invites everyone to protect themselves from the COVID-19 virus.
