A loan of $625 helps to buy more galangal to sell.


Entin's story

Entin is 47years old, married, and has one son. She is a trader, selling galangal to earn money for her family, which she has been doing for more than nine years. It has been a great contribution to the life of her family, not only to their daily needs but also to her child's educational needs.

Entin requested a loan from KBMI for 9,000,000 Indonesian rupiahs (IDR), which she will use to buy more galangal to expand her business. Her income is not sufficient for additional capital but she will be able to repay the loan.

Entin is very hardworking and always strives for the best for her child. She wants to improve her family's living conditions and creates a happy life.
