Karya Mandiri 2 Group's story

Suwandi is a father of two who lives in Jakarta City. He is a diligent entrepreneur. His business is selling men's and women's shoes to the pedestrians at the main street. Through his work, he earns a living for his family. He buys the shoes from a factory then resells them again at an affordable price. His business is the only place in the street that sells shoes which is an advantage for him over his competitors among the street vendors. With the loan, he will rent a more permanent kiosk in the nearby market where he can run his business and add a greater variety of shoe types to his inventory. By doing so, he hopes to increase his income for the family and children's education. Suwandi will use this loan to increase the capital available to buy shoes and sandals. Suwandi expects to be able to grow his business and generate more income which will allow him to have some savings in order to send both of his children to higher education.
