A loan of $800 helped a member to pay for ingredients to make and sell "pecel" (vegetables in peanut sauce), fried snacks, and cakes.

Bambu Kuning Group's story

Nurmah is married with three children. She is pictured in the photo wearing the white headscarf. She has been selling "pecel" (vegetables in peanut sauce), fried snacks, and cakes for the last fifteen years around her neighborhood. So far it's been going well and the income can meet the needs of the home. Her husband is self-employed. Two of their children are in high school. School is important for the children because she herself only attended through elementary school.

As there are no competitors in her neighborhood, she hopes the business can always go smoothly and the profits grow. This is her second loan with VisionFund Indonesia and she will use it to buy more ingredients to grow the business. She wants her family to always have enough income for their day to day living expenses.

The other group members have businesses which include selling lunch boxes of rice, chicken, etc., swimming pool maintenance, making handicrafts, and selling mobile phone minutes.
