A loan of $2,675 helped a member to purchase seeds and fertilizer.

Santi Pala Group's story

The Santi Pala group is located in Melaya village, Jembrana, West Bali. Most of the inhabitants work as farmers. The dry season they are facing today requires them to find different types of plants suitable for the dry season to increase their income. The group chooses to plant beans and other types of crops.

They need additional funds to purchase seeds and fertilizer. 10 of the men, who have similar businesses, joined together in a group and sent their proposal to MUK to have a loan. In addition to getting venture capital loans, they also received training from MUK.

I Wayan is the head of the Santi Pala group. He used the loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer. With this loan he hopes he can cultivate the land properly in order to produce the maximum yield and that the final result will improve the family's economy. One member couldn't attend the meeting because of sickness.
