A loan of $600 helped to process more mobile phone credit sales and bill payment transactions.


Lidya's story

Lidya runs a small stall which sells computer accesories and mobile phone airtime credits. Lidya lives in Cibubur, a semi-urban area about 1.5 hours from Jakarta. Lidya is married and lives with four persons in their family house. Lidya began working with Ruma one year ago because she was interested in selling mobile airtime. She feels really excited to expand her business in selling mobile phone airtime credits and serving bill payments. For the last three months she has had around $32 – 33 in sales on average (just mobile phone airtime credit sales). As the business runs, she hopes to get a Kiva loan as working capital in order to do more transactions on weekends.
