Ipah Saripah's story

Good day, lenders! Meet one of KBMI’s clients, Ipah Saripah. She is 54 years old and married with two sons and two daughters. Ipah Saripah is a trader, and her husband is a laborer. One of her children is still in school. The impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on their family is the implementation of school from home that uses an online system. This made it difficult for their child to access the course materials and send assignments to the teacher.

She has applied for a loan of 1,800,000 Indonesian rupiahs (IDR) from KBMI at Ciampea branch to buy a smartphone for her child's online education needs during Covid-19. Her income is not sufficient to buy a smartphone, but she will be able to repay the loan received by using her income as a laborer.

Ipah Saripah is a very hardworking mother who always strives for the best for her children and improves living conditions and creates a happy life. She is very grateful for the opportunity and wants to thank all lenders.
