Barokah Ciracas Group's story

Ani is a member of the Barokah Ciracas Group. There are three women in the group, and they all live in Susukan, about one hour away from central Jakarta city. Ani lives with her husband and two children. She runs a grocery store out of her home. She wants to borrow a loan to purchase rice and eggs in bulk. The other members sell prepared food like coconut rice as their businesses.

Ani's husband is a driver and earns about 3,000,000 rupiah a month. This is just enough to meet the family’s needs. A major challenge that Ani is facing now in her business is the weather, and she often feels tired because of her busy schedule. She works from 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. at the store and takes care of her children at the same time. In addition, she works as an aerobic instructor on the side to add to the family income.

Ani hopes as she grows her business, she can hire an employee and purchase inventory in bulk to reduce costs. She hopes to send her children to Islamic school.

The woman in the middle in the video is Ani.

In this group: Ani, Syafitri, Atih
