Gongseng Indah 1 Group's story

Pertiwi is 34 years old and married with four children. She is wearing a green shirt in the photo. Two of her children are of school age and are currently enrolled. The other two are ages one and four. She has owned a general store for five years. She will use this loan to expand her inventory in her store by purchasing more rice, oil, eggs, etc. She hopes that the expanded inventory will increase the profitability, allowing her to have more income to hopefully pay for all of her children's tuition through college.

Some of the other group members will use their loans to sell snacks and clothing on credit.

In this group: Pertiwi, Wagiyem, Hartitik, Ayu, Novi, Dianti
