Warti feeds the pigs 2X/day, mornings and evenings. Besides feeding rice and wheat shell clippings, Warti also feeds additional food, like Banana or talas leaves, and banana trunks. Before feeding, she bathe her pigs till clean. After subtracting feed cost, Warti profits about Rp200,000/piglet. This profit was used to pay for living expenses, and also to pay for her 6th grade child's education expenses. Warti's husband, Ketut Kawiarta, who works in a workshop, also helps in fulfilling living expenses. The house was built simply on rented land. Loan from Dinari are expected by Warti to improve the stalls, and buy additional pig feedstock.

Ni Komang Warti seorang ibu rumah tangga yang mempunyai hobi memelihara babi. Dengan modal awal Rp. 500.000,- Warti membeli 2 ekor bibit babi untuk penggemukan, Warti memeberi makan babinya 2 kali sehari, pada pagi dan sore hari. Disamping memberi dedak padi dan dedak gandum , Warti juga memberikan makanan tambahan seperti daun pisang, daun talas dan batang pisang. Sebelum diberi makan babinya dimandikan dulu sampai bersih, dan kandangnya dibersihkan juga. Setelah bibit babi dipelihara selama 6 bulan, laku terjual seharga Rp.1.000.000,- perekor. Setelah dikurangi biaya pakan Warti memperoleh keuntungan sebesar Rp.200.000,- perekor. Keuntungan ini dipakai untuk memenuhi kebutuhan hidupnya, dan juga untuk biaya pendidikan anaknya yang duduk di kelas 6 SD. Suami Warti, Ketut Kawiarta, yang bekerja sebagai bengkel, juga ikut membantu pemenuhan kebutuhan hidupnya . Rumahnya dibangun sangat sederhana dan tanahnya masih berstatus kontrakan . Pinjaman dari Dinari diharapkan Warti untuk memperbaiki kandangnya agar lebih bagus dan membeli bibit babi lagi.
