A loan of $825 helped to process more mobile phone credit sales and bill payment transactions.


Ira's story

Ira lives in Bogor, a suburban area located about an hour from Jakarta. Ira is a factory worker who runs a small stall that sells mobile phone airtime credits and services bill payments for the customers. She joined Ruma because she's interested in expanding her business. Previously, she took a working capital loan from Kiva and she has already paid it back on time.

Now, Ira is requesting another loan from Kiva because she sees sales opportunities on weekends as more customers come to her small shop to buy mobile phone airtime credits. Over the last months, she has been able to process around 8-9% higher sales volume on weekends than on weekdays. Ira hopes that she can improve the small stall that she runs and put aside the extra cash for her family's savings. She thanks you for your support.
