A loan of $1,075 helped to process more mobile phone airtime credit transactions on weekends.

Asep's story

Asep lives west of Bandung, about three hours from Jakarta. He manages a small shop selling snacks and mobile phone airtime credits. Asep is single.

Asep joined Ruma one month ago because he finds it interesting selling mobile phone airtime credits. With assistance and support from Ruma’s staff, Asep sees improvements in his shop. For the last month, he has earned an average of $6 - $7 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 and do more new business in the future.
