A loan of $1,050 helped to process more mobile phone credit sales on the weekends.


Desti's story

Desti runs a small stall selling mobile accessories and mobile phone airtime credits. Desti lives in Lebak, a semi-urban area about three hours from Jakarta. Desti is married and lives with three persons in the family home. Desti began working with Ruma one month ago because she was interested in selling mobile airtime. She feels really excited to expand her business by selling mobile phone airtime credits. For the last month, she has around $27 – 28 per day in sales on average (just mobile phone airtime credit sales). As the business runs, she hopes to get a Kiva loan as working capital in order to do more transactions on weekends.
