Flamboyan I Group's story

Since 2007, women's self-help groups already have been running. Flamboyan I is the name of this group of 14 members, located in a small suburb called Kroya. There are various types of businesses in this group, especially selling traditional foods such as egg rolls, arem-arem, wet pastel, gethuk lindri, tendril Gesing, and nagasari. There is also a business selling clothes. The members are very closely intertwined in solidarity because they co-exist and complement one another's types of snack foods while getting orders. They meet every month, taking turns hosting the meeting at each member's home. Some plans for this loan are to buy better means of production, and to buy more sophisticated cake molds in order to produce cakes more quickly.

Titi is the leader of this group and she is remarkable because she gives encouragement to other members. She has a small business making food such as wet pastel, dry pastel, and egg rolls. The benefits of the loan from Kiva are very meaningful to her life with her husband and two children. Their relationship is getting warmer because all of her work was done along with her husband. Titi hopes that with the help, she can buy additional tools to increase her production of printed cakes. Also, every member of the Flamboyan group and their families can prosper. In the picture, Titi is holding some goods she has produced.
