Pests caused by rats is the biggest problem happening in their rice farm. They have made many efforts to overcome the problem such as placed striped colored ribbons-similar to grass snake's skin color that rats are frightened- on their rice farms. Also, they grew tadpoles to invite the snakes. They also planned to invest some of the loan on an ultrasonic device - rats can not stand the noise - to evict the rats. The value of the device is Rp 300.000,00.

Hama tikus merupakan masalah yang besar bagi lahan pertanian mereka. Berbagai upaya telah mereka upayakan, antara lain : meletakkan benda yang berwarna belang – seperti warna ular sawah yang ditakuti oleh tikus – di lahan mereka dan memelihara kecebong untuk mengundang kehadiran ular. Mereka juga berencana untuk menginvestasikan sebagian pinjaman mereka untuk alat ultrasonik – tikus tidak tahan mendengar suara ini - guna mengusir tikus senilai Rp 300.000,00.

In cases where there is a group guarantee, members of the group are responsible for paying back the loans of their fellow group members in the case of delinquency or default.
