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


Siti's story

Siti runs a small stall which sells mobile accessories and mobile phone airtime credits, and processes bill payments. Siti lives in Bandung, a semi-urban area three hours from Jakarta. She is married and has children.

Siti began working with Ruma one month 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 month, she has had around $30 - $35 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 servicing bill payments (household electricity payments).
