I Putu Gede's story

I Putu Gede, 39, lives with his wife and four children. His wife is a housewife and two of his children are still in school. I Putu Gede is a farmer who has farmland behind his house. In his farm there are coconuts, bananas and cocoa. The produce he grows provides his family with money for the children's education, household needs and to save. His wife raises pigs at home; they have been doing that for 17 years, ever since they were married. Currently, he already has 10 fattening pigs and 4 sows. This effort was undertaken jointly with his wife. They already have considerable experience in terms of raising pigs and have gotten satisfactory results.

One constraint is waste generated in the form of pig manure. I Putu Gede has taken the manure to the farm for organic fertilizer, but that was not enough to cope. Hearing of the biogas program, he immediately joined. I Putu Gede is looking forward to the construction of a biogas reactor; in addition to reducing costs for cooking, pollution of the environment can be overcome. He also hopes to become an example for the people in his village on the importance of using biogas for life. I Putu Gede will also use the loan to expand the business by purchasing more superior piglets and building a new barn.
