A loan of $1,500 helped to process more mobile phone credit sales and bill payment transactions.

Evi's story

Evi lives in Bogor, a suburban area located about an hour from Jakarta. Evi and four other family members live together in the family house. Evi is an entrepreneur who runs a small stall that sells soft drinks, snacks, cell phone accessories, and mobile phone airtime credits. She joined Ruma because she was interested in expanding her business. Previously, she took a working capital loan from Kiva and she already paid it back on time.

Evi is taking 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 3-4% higher sales volume on weekends than on weekdays. Evi hopes that she can improve the small stall that she runs and put aside the extra cash for her family savings. She thanks you for your support.
