Ni Wayan Karsini
View original language description ↓
At the moment Ni Wayan Karsini, a housewife and a mother of two, is having a business of pig farming. She has 3 piglets at the moment which are farmed under a simple bamboo hut behind her house.


She has been farming these 3 piglets for 2 months now. With pig foods costing of IDR 10,000 (approx US$ 1.1) per day, the profit after 6 months of farming from 3 piglets can be IDR 900,000 (approx of US$ 95). This money is really significant to help her to provide for her family's daily needs. This additional income is very important to supplement the income from her husband, Putu Yasa, who works as a seasonal driver and he doesn't have a fixed income.


With this business, she wants to expand the pig farming so she can provide more to her family.
