Eddy's story

Eddy runs a warung, a small shop in Indonesian, selling snacks, drinks and other small items in Bogor. Bogor is about two hours away from Jakarta. Eddy’s shop is not just a typical warung because Eddy is also a part of the Ruma Network, where he sells mobile phone airtime credit and processes bill payments for customers. Eddy is excited to be a part of this network because he hopes that these services will bring more customers to the shop and increase his income. Eddy lives with his wife and four children. Since joining Ruma, Eddy is earning on average $50/per day in mobile airtime credit sales. With support and assistance from Ruma staff, he hopes to grow his business even more. Eddy is now offering to process electricity bill payments for customers as a new service. To do this, he is required to print receipts for these transactions. He is requesting a Kiva loan to help him to purchase this printer so he can offer this new service.
