Ni Putu Sri Wiriani
View original language description ↓
It is hard to find ready-to-eat entrees and snacks sellers in the Brawantangi village. Therefore, Ni Putu Sri Wiriani became a a travelling food seller, selling ready-to-eat entrees, snacks and various vegetables. Every morning, Sri buys her inventory from the individuals, who cook the food, and from her local market. Her customers mostly live in her neighborhood. They appreciate Sri’s service because they do not have to go to the market themselves to buy and prepare their meals. Sri earns around $2.50 - $5 profits daily. From this income and her husband’s as a farmer, they can support their daily needs, including their child’s first grade tuition. With the loan through DINARI, Sri is hopeful that she can expand her business.

Di dusun Brawantangi sangat jarang ditemui penjual lauk pauk dan kue serta makanan lainnya yang sudah siap disantap. Oleh karena itu Ni Putu Sri Wiriani berinisiatif untuk menjadi pedagang keliling yang menjual lauk pauk, kue dan berbagai macam sayuran yang sudah jadi. Setiap pagi Sri membeli bahan dagangannya dari orang yang sudah membuatkan dan ada pula yang dibeli di pasar. Langganan Sri umumnya berada di sekitar dusun tempat tinggalnya. Kebanyakan dari para pelanggannya merasa tertolong dengan dagang keliling yang ditekuni Sri karena tidak perlu harus ke pasar untuk membeli bahan makanan. Keuntungan perhari yang di dapat oleh Sri sekitar Rp. 25.000,- sampai Rp. 50.000,-. Dari keuntungan dagang keliling ini bersama suaminya yang bekerja sebagi petani, Sri mampu membiayai kebutuhan sehari-hari keluarganya, serta mampu memenuhi keperluan anaknya yang masih duduk di bangku SD kelas 1. Dengan adanya pinjaman dari DINARI maka besar harapan Sri akan mampu meningkatkan jumlah dagangannnya.
