AREAS AND OPPORTUNITIES TO MAKE IMPACT

  • Education is the most important long-term key to achieve a better life. Many of Koperasi Kasih Indonesia’s members have a drop-out child because of financial issue, especially at high school level, where government support (BOS) is not available.

    • Educational scholarships
    • Dedicated fund for education (interest-free)

  • Health is the next most important thing to live a better life.

    • Preventive measures, e.g., health-related education
  • Spending on basic needs is one variable that significantly affect Koperasi Kasih Indonesia’s members financial condition, with rice and cooking oil being the major two. Koperasi Kasih Indonesia was planning to launch a basic needs business to support its members; However it did not materialize due to limited resources.
