I Nyoman's story

I Nyoman, 54, is an elementary school teacher who lives in the village of Blimbingsari, western Bali. He has been a teacher for 26 years. He has two daughters, the first daughter has finished college and the second is still in high school. His wife is a housewife who works in the garden and raises pigs.

I Nyoman is making a serious effort to raise pigs because the results are very helpful for the family economy. One of the results is to help finance his daughter's college education. Currently he has 10 sows and a 56 square meter cage. At this time he sells piglets and fattening pigs for rolling pigs.

Having more than five pigs of course generates a lot of manure. Up till now to manage the pigs' manure, he used it for organic fertilizer. However, due to an increasing number of pigs, I Nyoman felt overwhelmed because of the air pollution they generated. In addition to pollution, they created an unhealthy environment as well.

Hearing of the biogas program from MUK, I Nyoman immediately joined. He wanted to turn pig manure that had been considered pollution into something useful. During this time he used two LPG gas cylinders every month. Each gas cylinder weighs 15 kg and costs 82,000 Rupiah (IDR). With the biogas, he hoped to be able to save on expenses to cover the kitchen. Besides, this program supports environmental conservation programs announced by the government.
