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


Lina's story

Lina runs a small stall which sells groceries, snacks, drinks, mobile phone airtime credits, and bill payment services. Lina lives in Bandung, a semi-urban area about three hours from Jakarta. Lina is married and has three children. Lina began working with Ruma three months ago because she wanted to increase her income and business by selling mobile airtime and processing bill payments. She feels really excited to expand her business in selling mobile phone airtime credits and processing bill payments. For the last three months, she has had around $10 - $15 per day in sales on average (just mobile phone airtime credit sales). Recently, she took a loan from Kiva for getting a printer to support her business in selling mobile phone airtime credits and processing bill payments (household electricity payments).
