Kokosan Group's story

Kokosan group has completed a loan in the first cycle, well and smoothly. All members of the group feel happy because it all is going well. They are increasing and growing their businesses, and the family economy was slightly increased.

This group still has a variety of businesses such as: selling snacks such as dent, risoles, martabak sweet, fried tempeh, tofu and steamed cakes; starting eateries; opening a grocery shop; selling clothes on credit. In cycle 2, they hope to keep supporting each other and complementing each other. They were visiting the sick, while providing financial support for the treatment. The loan plan for cycle 2 is that they will use the loan to add to the types of businesses and purchase better production equipment, adding new types of food.

Kokosan group is still led by a woman named Endang. She has five children who have completed their respective schools. In fact, they are married and have children. Endang, as a business leader, has a large roadside food stall in the city center. With a loan in this cycle 2, Endang will add cutlery such as plates and spoons and add more types of vegetables or dishes preferred by the community. With a loan from Kiva, this time the family has become better. Hopefully, in the second cycle, the business and its economy will increase.

In this group: Endang, Kuswantinah, Jusnati, Sakinah*, Mardiastuti, Sri, Sugiyanti, Tuti, Sodiyah, Herlina, Samini, Surtini
