A loan of $625 helped to process more mobile phone credit sales and bill payment transactions.

Deden's story

Deden lives west of Bandung, about three hours from Jakarta. He manages a small shop selling gasoline, groceries and mobile phone airtime credits. Deden is married and lives with four persons in the family home.

Deden joined Ruma one month ago because he found it interesting to sell mobile phone airtime credits. With assistance and support from Ruma’s staff, Deden sees improvements in his shop. For the last month, he has earned an average of $5 - $6 per day in mobile phone airtime credit sales. He hopes to get a Kiva loan as working capital to process more transactions.

His goal for his business is to expand into more new businesses in the future.
