A loan of $1,325 helped to process more mobile phone airtime credits and bill payment transactions on weekends.


Ali's story

Ali and his wife live in Tangerang, a city located about 30 minutes from South Jakarta. Tangerang is known as one of the satellite cities of Jakarta, where many factories of various industries are located. Ali manages several businesses, such as a small stall called a "warung" that sells snacks and drinks, and a mobile phone center that sells mobile phones, mobile phones accessories, mobile phone airtime credits, mobile phone service, and bill payment service. Ali joined Ruma because he's interested in Ruma's products.

Since he joined Ruma a month ago, Ali has made around $150 - $152 per day in sales, just from selling mobile phone airtime credits and processing bill payments for his customers. As his business continues, he would like to take out a loan for working capital from Kiva in order to boost these transactions, especially on weekends when more people tend to come to his stall. He hopes that he will be able to improve his business and seek more business opportunities. In the photo, he is sitting in his stall. Ali thanks you for your support.
