A loan of $1,325 helped to process more mobile phone credit sales on the weekends.


Tirta's story

Tirta runs a small stall where he sells mobile phone airtime credits. He lives in Lebak, a semi-urban area about three hours from Jakarta. Tirta is single and lives with four persons in the family home.

Tirta began working with Ruma six months 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 three months, he has had around $101 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 as working capital in order to do more transactions on weekends.
