A loan of $825 helps to buy more staple foods to grow her business.


Sumariah's story

Good day lenders! Meet one of KBMI’s clients, Sumariah. She is 51 years old, married, and has two sons and three daughters. Sumariah is a trader who sells staple foods so that she can earn money for her family. She has been running this business for more than 20 years. It has been a great contribution to the life of her family, not only with meeting their daily needs, but also with providing an education for her children.

Sumariah applied for a loan of 12,000,000 IDR from KBMI to buy more staple foods to grow her business. Her income is not sufficient to supply additional capital, but she will be able to repay the loan she received.

Sumariah is a very hardworking mother who always strives to provide the best for her children, improve their living conditions, and create a happy life. She is very grateful for this opportunity and wants to thank all of the lenders.
