Fighting for a better future? We need your help.

Creating a more equitable world takes a lot of time and energy, but at Kiva we’re in it for the long haul. 100% of money lent on Kiva goes to funding loans. That means we rely on donations from people like you to make this work possible. For a limited time, if you donate $35 or more, a $25 bonus will be added to your account (you’ll get an email once it’s there).

Endang's story

Endang lives in Bogor, about two hours from Jakarta. Bogor is known as the city of rain. Endang manages a small shop selling snacks, drinks, drinking water, and mobile phone airtime credit. Endang is single and living with five persons in the family home. Her siblings are all in school.

Endang joined Ruma six months ago because he wants to expand his business selling mobile phone airtime credit. With assistance and support from Ruma’s staff, Endang has seen improvements in his shop. For the last three months, he has earned an average of $60 - $90 /day in mobile phone airtime credit sales. He hopes to get a Kiva loan as working capital to process more transactions. His goal for his business is to expand and have more and more business opportunities with Ruma, especially increasing his down-liners.
