Karya Jaya 2 Group's story
Saparudin is the leader of Karya Jaya 2. In this picture he wears the Blue shirt in the Middle. He's been working as a farmer for his whole life. He is an agriculturist following a family tradition, cultivating up to 2 Ha of land. Saparudin's main crops are Corn (dry season) and Rice (rainy season) in his fields. The problem that he faces while planting usually are pest control & viruses that attack the crops. Because often he got attacked by crop viruses, the amount which he sells from the harvest is too small to cover his family needs since he has two children. Saparudin has requested a loan from Vasham in order to get access to high quality farm inputs which can guarantee a higher yield of corn in each season, as well as fertilizers to help him control the pest and viruses. With higher yield of corn, comes higher income for him and his family. He has been with Vasham for the last two harvesting seasons and already earns a better income to provide his family. With this loan from Kiva, Saparudin is hoping that he can get better farm inputs. Furthermore, Saparudin hopes to obtain a constant source of income which will permit him to provide his family with a better education and better living conditions.
