I Komang Wistra
I Komang Wistra has fully paid off his 1st loan from DINARI foundation. He used that loan for his farming activities, buying organic and chemical fertilizer.As a result his vanilla farm (Vanilla planifolia) gives a good harvest. One vanilla plant can produce 2-5 KG vanilla. He harvested around 500 KG in the last harvest season. However due to the drop in vanilla price, I Komang Wistra only earned IDR 2.5 million from it (around USD 210).

I Komang Wistra is now planning to a new loan from DINARI. This time around he wants to focus on his Cacao plants. He switched to Cacao because cacao price is more stabile than vanilla. He is going to use this loan to buy more high quality cacao seed and fertilizer.

View original language description ↓
I Komang Wistra sudah menyelesaikan pinjamannya untuk tahap yang pertama. Pinjaman tersebut dipergunakan untuk biaya pengolahan tanah yang meliputi pembelian pupuk kimia, pupuk organik dan biaya untuk penyemprotan anti hama. Untuk masa tanam saat ini, pertumbuhan vanilinya bisa berkembang dengan baik karena mendapat perawatan yang optimal. Setiap tanaman vanili bisa menghasilkan 2 – 5 kilogram vanili basah. Panen yang lalu I Komang Wistra mendapatkan hasil 500 kilogram. Namun, saat ini harga vanili sangat rendah, yakni Rp. 5.000.- per kilogram. Jadi panen yang lalu I Komang Wistra hanya mendapatkan 500 x 5000 = Rp. 2.500.000.- Walaupun hasil yang didapat tidak sesuai dengan yang diharapkan, namun I Komang Wistra tidak terlalu bersedih karena dikebunnya terdapat juga pohon kakao yang juga mendapatkan perawatan dari biaya yang dikeluarkan untuk perawatan vanili. Pinjaman kedua ini I Komang Wistra berencana untuk lebih fokus untuk tanaman kakao karena hasilnya lebih baik dan harganya stabil. Pinjaman kedua ini dipergunakan untuk biaya pupuk dan bibit kakao untuk memperbanyak tanaman kakao yang sudah dimilikinya.
