Inon's story

Initial loan of Rp 1,000,000 (Translator’s note: 1 US$ fluctuates between Rp9,000-9,500.00) that Inon received earlier has been used to increase inventory of her Drink stall. This time besides selling sodas like Fanta & Coca Cola, she has also been able to sell Fruit juice in her stall. First period loan was used to buy fruits and a blender. Every day she shops for fruits at Anyar Sari market, driven by her husband Jhony. Besides being the favorite drink of surrounding area, Inon feels lucky since the place she sells drinks and juice is next to a food stall. Every sunday, she could have a nett profit of approximately Rp 200,000, depending on the number of customers. Inon hopes that after finishing her first loan well, she would be given additional capital to support her drinks business.
