A loan of $675 helped a member to pay for repairing her food cart.

Warakas 8 Gaspul Group's story

Nani is a mother of three children. She has been selling rice and other dishes for 16 years from a cart on the street corner near her home. She also sells newspapers. Her husband is a motorcycle taxi driver. She enjoys selling food from her cart because it can supplement her husband's constantly varying income. One of her children is of school age and is currently attending the 5th grade. The business is going well but now she needs to make repairs to her cart. She will use this loan to do so.

She hopes that all of her children can attend the university and the family will have enough money to pay for it. She herself only attended school until 9th grade so her children's education is important to her.

The other group members will use their loans for their businesses which include selling peanuts and "krupuk" (Indonesian chips), selling "nasi uduk" (an Indonesian coconut rice dish), selling rice, running a grocery store, and fixing electronics.

In this group: Nani, Rohayati, Astuti, Yati, Yohana, Aida
