A loan of $3,500 helped a member to open a shop and to buy cookware.


Mentari Group's story

The first loan for the group Mentari is complete. It went well and good. The members of the group completed the loan smoothly and without a hitch. Loans from Kiva really mean a lot to the development of their businesses. The loan is very helpful for the business and increases the family income. Therefore, the group plans to take a second loan from Kiva for each member's retail store. Heriyani, the leader of this group, is remarkable because she provides encouragement to the members so that they can make their payments well. She has a business selling snacks to stalls or to the schools. She also opened a refreshment stall for ice juice. The benefits of this loan from Kiva mean very much to her life with her husband and their three children. This loan will be used to enable Heriyani to open a shop and buy cookware. She, on behalf of the group Mentari, says thank you very much to lenders who have helped in the development efforts of the members of the group.

In this group: Heriyani, Ruth, Caterina, Surtiana, Suryati, Suparmi, Klartje, Nonah, Helmiah, Rumiyati, Umi, Dwi
