A loan helped to buy a laptop for her child’s online education needs.

Maryamah's story

Good day lenders! Meet one of KBMI’s clients, Maryamah. She is 37 years old and married, with one son and one daughter. She runs a business selling food and snacks and her husband has been working as an employee. 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 use 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 7,000,000 IDR from KBMI at Kosambi Branch to buy a laptop for her child’s online education needs. Her income is not sufficient to buy a laptop, but she will be able to repay the loan received by using the profits generated from her business.

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