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

A loan helped to buy a smartphone for her son’s online educational needs during the pandemic.

Rinah's story

Rinah is 49 years old and married with a son and daughter. To support the family, she and her husband run a business selling foods and cakes.

The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on their family has been felt by the implementation of an online school system. This has made it difficult for Rinah’s son, seen here, to access course materials and send assignments to his teacher.

Rinah has applied for a loan of 1,900,000 IDR from KBMI at Pakuhaji Branch to buy a smartphone to meet her son’s online educational needs during the pandemic. While the family’s income is not sufficient to buy one out of pocket, she will be able to repay the loan incrementally by using the profits from their employment.

Rinah wishes to create a happy life for her family. She is a mother who always strives for the best for her children and works hard to improve their living conditions. She is very grateful for this opportunity and wants to thank all of her lenders.
