View original language description ↓
Because of high living cost to pay for expenses of 2 school aged children, Ni Ketut Sutiami forced herself to open a retail stall in her home. She is doing this, since she wants a better family life from her increased income. Previously Ni Ketut Sutiami only works as a tentant farmer. Ni Ketut Sutiami sells vegetable, light food, bread and drinks. With an initial capital of Rp 1,000,000 (about US$110), Ni Ketut Sutiami buys her items and vegetables from her customers. Ni Ketut Sutiami goes to the market from 4:00 AM to buy her retail items needs in the Morning Market in Negara city. Ni Ketut Sutiami opens her retail stall from 7:00 AM to 6:00 PM. Each day profit could reach up to Rp50,000 (US$5.50). This profit is used to help her husband I Made Rina who works as a tenant farmer, to pay living expenses and education expenses for their 2 children. First child is in 9th Grade, and the second in 5th grade. Capital loaned from Dinari would be used to complete facilities in retail stall. Ni Ketut Sutiami hopes that with Dinari's capital her business would expand, moves forward, and their lifes needs fulfilled.
