Ni Komang Sunarti
View original language description ↓
Besides being a farmer Ni Komang Sunarti also raised fattening piglets. With the capital she had, Ni Komang Sunarti bought 2 piglets for Rp250,000 (about US$26)/piece. Ni Komang Sunarti is persistent in this business, since family economical needs forced her to work hard to think about raising her 3 small children. Her stall is already permanent. Ni Komang Sunarti could profit Rp1000,000 (about US$105) within 6 months. This profit very much help her household expense needs, since if they only rely on her husbands income as tenant farmer, it would not be sufficient to pay for daily expoenses. For future plans, Ni Komang Sunarti likes to raise more pigs so that she could receive more profit, and her family's economy could improve.

Selain sebagai petani Ni Komang Sunarti juga memelihara babi penggemukan. Dengan modal yang ada, Ni Komang Sunarti membeli 2 ekor bibit babi seharga Rp. 250.000.- per ekor. Ni Komang Sunarti sangat tekun menjalankan usaha ini karena tuntutan ekonomi keluarga sehingga ia harus bekerja keras dan memikirkan biaya 3 orang anak yang masih kecil. Kandang yang dimilikinya sudah permanen. Ni Komang Sunarti bisa menerima keuntungan sebesar Rp.1.000.000.- dalam 6 bulan. Keuntungan ini sangat membantu untuk memenuhi kebutuhan rumah tangganya, karena bila hanya mengandalkan suami yang hanya sebagai petani, kadang tidak mencukupi untuk biaya sehari-hari.Untuk itu rencananya kedepan, Ni Komang Sunarti ingin lebih banyak memelihara bibit babi agar bisa mendapat keuntungan yg lebih dan ekonomi keluarga semakin baik.
