We have another fascinating borrower interview for you this week with Indonesian taxi driver and entrepreneur, Said.
You can invest in his small business loan for 14 more days! Let’s get started!
Bitbond: Thank you very much for taking the time to talk to us. When was the first time you heard about bitcoin? Have you ever used it?
You are welcome!
I first heard about bitcoin around January 2015. At that time, bitcoin had several issues and became one of the hot topics.
I was curious about it, so I started searching and ended up finding many articles about bitcoin.
I started using bitcoin in Indonesia in March 2015. I became a trader and started mining with bitcoin from that time.
Bitbond: Great. Since when have you been running your own business? Could you tell us a bit more about what you do?
Actually, I first started a business back in 2008. It lasted until 2010 and it was related to selling credit for mobile phones.
A year after that I was working as a soya milk seller, and at the same time starting a business where I exported brand clothes from Singapore to Indonesia. It ran for about one year. It was really tiring and I thought another business could bring me a higher income.
At September 2011, I started working in Online Marketing for an Indonesian company. When on December 2014 I could buy my own car, I resigned from that company and became a real businessman.
In January 2015, I started my own Company which specialised in recycling plastic waste and in October I began working as a taxi driver and finally joined Uber.
Bitbond: Nice. How come you ended up starting this car business and why have you chosen this particularly niche?
I have one big dream: to become a national car manufacturer! To reach that goal I have to take many small steps and grow a little bit every day. I have to reach success for myself first, then for my family and then for my environment.
Bitbond: Cool! What do you hope to achieve with your loan and why did you choose Bitbond over a bank?
What I most like about Bitbond is its uniqueness.
Banks are very inconvenient and make getting a loan very challenging. They don’t really want to help entrepreneurs to grow their business.
Bitbond arrived with its great #unbank system and a great method to facilitate peer-to-peer lending. So welcome to the “New Era of Technology” or in other words, “Share Economy Era”.
Bitbond: What are the benefits of peer-to-peer lending?
Bitbond: What is your favorite feature on Bitbond? What features do you think are missing?
My favorite feature is the rating system. It works in a way where the lower the borrower’s rating, the higher the interest rates on his loan. This gives the lender more information when selecting his investments.
By the way, let’s not forget the business quote: “High risk, high return!”
Bitbond: What would you want potential investors to know about your loan?
I am verified with Bitbond’s requirements and I will pay back the money on the scheduled time. Feel free to ask anything about my investment. I really appreciate all the investments made on my loan!
In my belief, if we help people, God will help us as well. So we should keep helping each other.
