Erliana borrows from Whole Planet Foundation’s long-term microfinance partner KOMIDA in Indonesia. She uses her loan capital to buy fish and then her husband uses salt to dry them so she can sell them along the roadside. Erliana has been a KOMIDA microcredit client for two years. She started with a loan of 2 million IDR (≈$137 USD) and currently borrows 5 million IDR (≈$342 USD).

KOMIDA is a microfinance organization that engages society in women’s empowerment. KOMIDA was established with the desire to empower the poor community, especially women, by developing a professional and sustainable microfinance institution.  Learn more about KOMIDA
