Supplier Relations Officer

Ruma is a social enterprise incubated by Grameen Foundation that provides business-in-a-box solutions for the poor. Ruma recently won 1st Place at Harvard's Social Enterprise Conference. The leadership in Ruma includes alumni from Harvard Business School, Kellog School of Management, the UNDP, Kiva, BCG, Mckinsey, and Grameen Foundation.

Of the 240 million people in Indonesia, 3/4 live below $2.5 a day, and 2/3 have mobile phones. Ninety percent of these users buy prepaid minutes instead of paying a monthly bill. Ruma sells a business-in-a-box that enables small entrepreneurs to sell prepaid minutes. We buy minutes at a discount from 10 telecom operators and store them in our server. When a customer buys minutes from our entrepreneur, we send the minutes electronically via SMS thereby reducing the need for a physical voucher. We
worked with Grameen Foundation to develop this model, which is essentially the
next evolution of the Grameen Phone. As of March 2010, we’ve deployed a network of 2,000 entrepreneurs, $3,000 worth of minutes to 80,000 customers each day. Seventy percent of our entrepreneurs were below the poverty line when they joined; now 100% are profitable. We plan to launch a jobs market, micro-insurance and retail application using our prepaid minutes platform.

Our efforts support the Grameen Foundation’s mission to empower the world’s poorest people to lift themselves out of poverty. Please visit More details on the company can be found here:
