Matahari Terbit Group's story

Ida, 34 years old, is married to Missin and blessed with two children: Ridwan, 11 years old and Aulia, 4 years old. Ida has been running her business for three years. She started with selling cold drinks. With each passing day immigrants and residents have increased rapidly, so Ida's business is growing also. She tried to expand her business to prepare not only cold drinks but fix up her kiosk to be a coffee shop and she added more snacks.

Now, a few meters from her home, the government is going to build housing for residents in her district, and usually the workmen take breakfast and coffee time in her coffee shop. So Ida is using this loan to buy more cigarettes, coffee powder, sugar and snacks to prepare drinks in bigger amounts.

From the profit Ida can prepare a better life for her children, for example, buying lesson books and taking her family to a local amusement park. Her dream is to send her child to college at Indonesia University.
