Indonesia has experienced great political and economic upheaval in recent years. The situation has left high poverty levels in the country.
Due to a lack of access to financial services, many Indonesians are unable to improve their well-being at both the individual and household level. This leaves them vulnerable to economic shock, which ultimately affects the lives of their children.
Generally, Indonesian women hold a major role in family economics as small business owners. Small loans allow these women to accumulate assets, boost their income and build financial security in the event of an emergency.
With more than 70% of the potential clientele denied access to finance, our services in Indonesia provide a much needed alternative to traditional money lenders.
Indonesia is an archipelago country with many poor families living far from the capital city. Therefore we are seeking to expand our services to Borneo Island.
Our goal is to reach more children, allowing them to receive better access to healthcare and education.
We welcome the support and engagement from donors who are interested in partnering with us.
Sumini, Rorotan Village, Indonesia
Sumini lives in the Rorotan Village with her four children. She earns a living by raising and selling poultry.
Sumini was able to develop her livestock farm after she received a loan of less than US$200. The income from the business allows Sumini to pay for her children’s school fees while meeting the family's basic needs.
