A loan of $550 helped a member to pay for "aci" (a type of flour), rice ice and noodles.

Merpati Utara Group's story

Siti is 33 years old. She is married with two children. Siti has been selling rice and fried snacks for three years. She has a kiosk in front of the elementary school. Her business is going well because children like to have snacks on their break time. When there is an exam week or long school vacation, she earns less income. She is taking her first loan with VisionFund Indonesia to buy more "aci" (a type of flour) to produce "cireng" (an Indonesian fried snack), rice, ice and noodles to sell. In the future she plans to expand her business and give her children a better education than she received.

Other group members are selling gado-gado (Indonesian mixed vegetables with peanut sauce), clothes on credit and Tupperware on credit.

In this group: Siti, Tuti, Lili, Yuningsih, Siti
