A loan of $550 helped to process more mobile phone credit sales on the weekends.

Al's story

Al lives north of Bogor, about two hours from Jakarta. Al manages a small shop selling mobile accessories, service hand phones and mobile phone airtime credit. Al is married and lives with three persons in the family home.

Al joined Ruma one month ago because he found it interesting to sell mobile phone airtime credits. With assistance and support from Ruma’s staff, Al sees improvements in his shop. For the last month, he earned an average of $27- 28 per day in mobile phone airtime credit sales. He hopes to get a Kiva loan as working capital to process more transactions on the weekends.
