I Made has one sow and eight piglets that he will keep for fattening. Aside from being a pig farmer, I Made also works as a truck driver, transporting coconut.
To increase the number of pigs, I Made needs financial support. But he is plagued with waste generated by the pigs in large quantities. Therefore, he joined the biogas program from MUK. In addition to the loan, he will learn to build a biogas reactor to minimize waste from pig manure and provide organic fertilizer that will be very useful for soil fertility in his garden.
I Made will get a 15M IDR loa. He will use 5M IDR to build the reactor and 10M IDR to buy superior quality piglets and feed and to make new cages. He hopes the plan will be successful so that he gets maximum results.
More information about this loan
This loan is part of MUK's biogas pilot program, designed to finance construction and installation of biogas digesters that convert livestock waste into fuel for stoves and electricity. These units help farmers save money that they would otherwise spend on energy, and offer sanitary disposal mechanisms for waste. The digestion process also produces organic fertilizers as a byproduct, providing a low-cost alternative to expensive chemical fertilizers. These loans are designed to help farmers repay with the funds they save.
