Swanto's story

Good day, lenders! Now it’s time for you to meet one of the Ruma agents, Swanto. Swanto lives in West Bandung, a suburban area located about three hour’s drive from Jakarta, the capital city of Indonesia. He is happily married. He and his wife have three children (two daughters and one son). Swanto owns a stall that sells small snacks and drinks and provides mobile payment services for his community. He already joined Ruma for a year. He knew Ruma from Ruma’s sales executive who came to his stall. He decided to join Ruma because he wants to try another business opportunity. Swanto has a really high spirit to improve his life and that’s what make his business better each day. As the business grows, Swanto is hoping to get a working capital loan from Kiva. He will use the capital to provide more mobile airtime credits and bill payment services to his community. Having known about the importance, your loan will be very useful to help Swanto improves his business and accordingly, his community who needs access to such services. Swanto’s goal towards Ruma in the nearly future is to serve an e-commerce business for his community, a latest Ruma’s product called Mapan. As seen in the photo, Swanto is the one who is standing. He thanks you for your kind support.
