I Wayan Putra
View original language description ↓
I Wayan Putra is the bread winner of his family. Ever since his both children were married, he has been living only with his wife Ni Ketut Neri. To cover daily needs, I Wayan Putra raises Balinese Cattle. With loan from DINARI, I Wayan Putra bought a calf for 4,200,000 IDR (1USD~9,000 IDR). With helps from a veterinary from DINARI, I Wayan Putra learned a lot of experience on how to raise cattle well. In the morning, the cattle was fed with wheat pollard. Each day he spends 5,000 IDR to raise the cattle with the help of his wife Ketut Neri. After four months, the calf can be sold and is priced by its weight. Hence I Wayan Putra works really hard to raise the cattle so he could maximize its weight when it comes to the selling time.
