A loan of $625 helped to process more mobile phone credit sales on the weekends.


Asep's story

Asep runs a small stall selling mobile phone airtime credits. Asep lives in Lebak, a semi-urban area about three hours from Jakarta. Asep is single and lives with five persons in the family home.

Asep began working with Ruma one month ago because he was interested in selling mobile airtime. He feels really excited to expand his business in selling mobile phone airtime credits. For the last month, he has around $95 – 96 per day in sales on average (just mobile phone airtime credit sales). As the business continues to run, he hopes to get a Kiva loan for working capital in order to do more transactions on weekends.
