Update December 2018
It took almost one year until Sri repaid her loan as planned. Now she received a second one in order to expand the village shop further.
39-year-old Sri lives with her mother in Peringgasela Selatan. After graduating in 1998 she began sewing. Today, she is the chairwoman of a women’s’ sewing association. The garments are sold in several boutiques or to collectors. Gas cartridges used for stoves are sold as well. Petrol sales make up a monthly profit of approximately 80€.
Sewing brings in an additional 20€ per month. To increase her income, Sri would like to open a sewing boutique with members of her women’s sewing association. For this project, Sri received a micro credit of Rp.2.000.000.
