A loan of $1,225 helped to buy a motorcycle to use as transportation for managing his branch office and its area.

Irfan's story

Irfan used to be Ruma’s business partner before he decided to become Ruma’s field officer when he got a text message from his field officer in Serang. The offer gave him an opportunity to join Ruma as a Field Officer. He has been working as a field officer for 1.5 years. He enjoys Ruma because of the kinship value in this social enterprise. Irfan is married with a 3-year-old child, who lives also with his wife in Serang. His wife is a housewife.

As a branch head in Bogor Barat, Irfan needs to live in another city that takes more than 3-4 hours by motorcycle. This motorcycle will not only help him improve the Bogor Barat branch but also control and monitor his staff, finding good prospective Ruma business partners that will help to have sustained business with Ruma.

Ruma’s network management manager recommended Irfan because the branch head needs to have the capacity to control both the office and their field officers, and also the field. And a motorcycle is the best tool for Irfan to manage all of his roles and responsibility.
