A loan of $3,800 helped a member to buy equipment and bridal makeup for her salon.


Seruni Group's story

The "Seruni" group was newly formed about one year ago. This group was formed because all the women had small businesses and knew each other. They have a common goal to further grow their businesses and improve the welfare of their families. There are so many types of businesses from the "Seruni" group including a Bridal Salon, selling herbs, selling cell phone credit, selling snacks, selling clothes and pillows, selling noodles and farming ducks and chickens.

Siti, the leader of this group, has a Bridal Salon. Her husband works as a contractor, Siti has two children who are still in school. With this loan, she wants to buy equipment and bridal makeup. Currently, she rents equipment, but with this loan she won’t have to do so. So the price that she charges clients will decrease, making her business more competitive. Her dream is to start a Bridal Course at her salon. This loan from Kiva will help develop the businesses of this group. Siti is very grateful to the lenders of Kiva, who have helped all the members of the group, even though the lenders don’t even know the members personally.

In this group: Siti, Heni, Nunik, Retno, Sami, Sunarti, Maria, Suberti, Tumini, Puji, Sulastri, Rinda, Ngadiem, Kuntalasari, Siti, Semi, Suwarni, Tipuk, Subariah , Sumarsih, Sanis, Onny, Sri, Sakinatun
