Sukarta's story

Meet Sukarta. He is a hardworking man who lives with his wife in Depok, a satellite city located at the south of Jakarta. Currently, Sukarta and his wife do not have a child but they are planning to. To meet his family's needs, Sukarta runs a small stall that sells mobile phone accessories, mobile airtime credits and some snacks and drinks. He began working with Ruma 6 months ago because he wanted to increase his income and he's also interested in expanding his networks. For the last two months, Sukarta's daily transaction from selling mobile phone airtime credits can be up to 75 per day and is expected to grow more, especially on the weekends. As the business continues, he hopes to get a working capital loan from Kiva. In the photo, Sukarta is standing in front of his small stall.
