Encouraged by the success of our first microfinance project in Mlese Village (From our findings it is interesting to note that people in general did not want to accept a micro loan higher than between $10 and $80, since they fear they would not be able to pay back a bigger sum as that would be culturally shameful. RMF used this self-regulatory process and has had a 99% payback rate), we decided to start a second project in Birit Village, Wedi District, Earthquake Area in Klaten, Central Java, Indonesia, in cooperation with our partner organization in Indonesia, Yayasan KOMPIP. Birit is one of a hundred villages destroyed after the earthquake in Central Java.

More than 80% of the houses in this location were severely damaged. Social and economic infrastructures were destroyed and many people lost their jobs.
