A loan of $325 helped to pay for a deposit on an electronic data capture (EDC) machine for his bill payment business.


Eddy's story

Bapak (Mr.) Eddy owns a cellular shop and a small grocery stall in his neighborhood. In his modest shop, he sells Ruma’s airtime prepaid minutes, snacks (biscuits, fried crackers), drinks, candies, pens, pencils, and cigarettes. He is married and has four children. The age range of his children is very wide. His first child is 25 years old, then a set of twins who are 22 years old, and the last one is 12 years old.

By having an EDC machine, Bapak Eddy wants to be able to do the transaction for bill payments from his shop. He expects that people will come to him to pay their monthly electric bill, buy electricity vouchers, pay monthly landline phone bills, and motorcycle installments. He is interested in Ruma’s new program because he can actually expand his business. His goals are to be successful and generate more income for the family.
