A loan of $250 helped to purchase a printer to process more mobile phone credit sales and bill payment transactions.


Eka's story

Eka runs a small stall which sells mobile phone airtime credits and processes bill payments. She lives in Serang, a semi-urban area about three hours from Jakarta. Eka is married.

Eka began working with Ruma five months ago because she wanted to increase her income and business by selling mobile airtime and servicing bill payments. She feels really excited to expand her business in selling mobile phone airtime credits and servicing bill payments. For the last three months, she has had around $46 - $50 per day in sales on average (just mobile phone airtime credit sales).

Recently, she took a loan for getting a printer from Kiva to support her business in selling mobile phone airtime credits and processing bill payments (household electricity payments).
