Rearing pigs appear to be a common activity performed by mothers living in Sumbersari village. But because limited availability of funding, such activity were not carried out well, until the emergent of the idea of forming pig rearing groups with the hope that being together in a group thus able to have the opportunity to expend activity funding from parties are interested with the existence of small business. The name “Pigy Lestari” (Eternal Pigy) was finally selected as the name of the group with 11 members, with Ni Komang Ratiani as the leader. After the group Pigy Lestari was formed the members submit a start-up loan application with DINARI, whether for capital funding or veterinary assistance. From each funding they attained, will be used to purchase piglets, mother pig and also feed and supplies. Income from the sale varies depending on market situation. Gain is usually greater during religious celebrations because demand for pork is high thus increasing the price of pork. From 1 piglet alone, the net gain is approximately Rp 400.000, - after rearing for 6 months. Each gain will be use to supplement the families financial needs. All members of the Pigy Lestari group hope the start-up funding from DINARI will further advance their business also able to develop.

Memelihara ternak babi merupakan hal yang biasa dilakukan oleh ibu-ibu yang tinggal di dusun Sumbersari. Tetapi karena keterbatasan modal, usaha yang mereka tekuni ini tidak bisa berjalan dengan baik, sehingga munculah ide untuk membentuk kelompok peternak babi dengan harapan bahwa setelah tergabung dalam sebuah kelompok maka mereka akan memiliki peluang untuk mengusahakan modal usaha dari pihak lain yang peduli dengan keberadaan usaha kecil. Nama “Pigy Lestari” akhirnya dipilih sebagai nama kelompok mereka dengan jumlah anggota seluruhnya 11 orang,yang diketuai oleh Ni Komang Ratiani.
Setelah kelompok Pigy Lestari ini terbentuk maka mereka mengajukan permohonan pembinaan kepada DINARI baik itu dalam permodalan maupun pendampingan oleh dokter hewan. Dari setiap modal yang mereka peroleh, itu dipakai untuk membeli bibit penggemukan, penginduk dan juga stok pakan untuk ternak mereka. Hasil penjualan yang biasa mereka peroleh cukup bervariasi berdasarkan situasi pasar. Keuntungan tertinggi bisa mereka peroleh menjelang hari-hari besar agama karena biasanya kebutuhan akan daging babi cukup banyak sehingga hargapun juga meningkat. Dari satu ekor penggemukan saja keuntungan bersih yang bisa diperoleh sekitar Rp 400.000,- setelah dipelihara selama 6 bulan. Dari setiap keuntungan yang diperoleh ini mereka pergunakan untuk membantu mencukupi kebutuhan keluarga. Semua anggota kelompok Pigy Lestari berharap pembinaan yang mereka peroleh dari DINARI bisa berlanjut terus sehingga usaha mereka juga bisa berkembang.
