A loan of $350 helped to process more mobile phone airtime credits on weekends.


Syafrudin's story

Syafrudin and other four family members live together in a family home in Serang, a suburban area located about three hours from Jakarta, the capital city. Syafrudin is a single man who manages a small stall called a "warung" that sells snacks, drinks, groceries, and mobile phone airtime credits. He joined Ruma because he wanted to improve his business so he can put aside the extra money for family savings. Syafrudin hopes to get a working capital loan from Kiva because he sees more opportunities to boost up these transactions, especially on weekends. For the last three months, his average sales were about $30 - $31 per day just from selling mobile phone airtime credits. He also seeks other business opportunities for the future, such as processing bill payments for his customers. In the photo, Syafrudin is standing in his stall. Syafrudin thanks you for your support.
