Ni Nyoman Darti
View original language description ↓
Darti lives alone with her husband. Their two children are married and they live in another town. Darti and her husband lives in a permanently built house which is simple but clean. Darti wants to stay working as she does not want to be dependent to their children's support. Therefore she farms pig. At the moment she has 5 pigs which are kept at a hut build from cement.


She can earn profit of IDR 2 million every 6 months (around USD 220/ 6 months). She uses this money to finance their daily life. In the future she wants to have more pigs so she can have more income.

Translated from Indonesian by Antonius Gunadi, Kiva Volunteer.




Darti hanya tinggal berdua dengan suami. Dua orang anak mereka sudah menikah dan tinggal di kota. Rumah tempat tinggal Darti permanen dan sangat bersih. Walaupun dalam hidupnya tidak lagi menanggung anak –anak mereka tetapi Darti tetap bersemanggat untuk bekerja. Darti tidak mau hanya mengharap dan bergantung pada anak –anak dan juga menantunya. Untuk itu Darti memelihara 5 ekor babi, agar bisa mendapat penghasilan yang lumayan. Setiap harinya Darti disibukkan dengan usaha babinya. Dengan kandang terbuat dari beton, Darti setiap paginya mengurus ternak mereka. Pada sore harinya Darti mencari dedaunan untuk babi peliharaannya. Keuntungan yang didapat sebesar Rp. 2.000.000.- per 6 bulan. Keuntungan ini digunakan untuk biaya hidup sehari-hari. Suaminya sangat mendukung usaha ini, bahkan untuk kedepannya Darti ingin lebih banyak memelihara babi dan bisa menambah jumlah kandang lagi.
