Rahmat's story

Rahmat runs a small shop selling fertilizers and patched tires in Serang. Serang is about two hours away from Jakarta. Rahmat’s shop is not just a typical warung (small shop in Indonesian) because Rahmat is also a part of the Ruma Network, where he sells mobile phone airtime credit and processes bill payments for customers. Rahmat 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. Rahmat lives with his wife and two children. Since joining Ruma, Rahmat is earning on average $5 - 10/per day in mobile airtime credit sales. With the support and assistance from Ruma staff, he hopes to grow his business even more. Rahmat 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.
