A loan of $2,200 helped a member to buy three piglets and food.

Mertha Sedana Group's story

For housewives in Bali, it has become commonplace to have pigs that are raised to improve the family's income. But the problem is most of them do not know the correct way of raising pigs. To enhance their capabilities, they joined in a group to exchange information as well as to apply for loans.

Ni Ketut, 35, a housewife, became the head of the group Mertha Sedana. The group hopes to enhance their capabilities in terms of raising pigs and get the capital to support their businesses. Ni Ketut will use her part of the proposed loan to buy three piglets and food. In five months, the pigs will be ready for sale. The profits from this venture will be fully used to support the family economy.

In this group: Ni Ketut, Ni Wayan, Kadek, Ni Made, Ni Nengah, Ni Nyoman, Ni Ketut, Ni Ketut, Ni Nyoman, Ni Nyoman
