A loan of $250 helped to purchase a printer so she can print out required receipts for mobile phone credit sales and bill payment transactions.


Wahyu's story

Wahyu runs a small stall which sells snacks, drinks, and mobile phone airtime credits. Wahyu lives in Bogor, a peri-urban area about two hours from Jakarta. Wahyu is married and living with six persons in the family home.

To increase the family income, Wahyu also works as a dealer. She joined Ruma twelve months ago because she wanted to increase her income. She feels really excited to expand her business of selling mobile phone airtime credits and processing bill payments for customers. For the last three months, she has been earning an average of $100/day in mobile phone airtime credit sales.

Wahyu is starting to process electricity bill payments for her customers, which is a much-needed service in the area and will increase her income. To provide this new service, Wahyu is required to print out receipts for customers. A Kiva loan will help her purchase this printer so she can offer the new service.
