Jati Ayu Group's story

For housewives in Bali, especially in rural areas, it has become normal for women to play an active role in supporting the needs of the family in addition to what the head of the household does. In addition to farming, another activity that helps to make ends meet from day to day is raising livestock, especially pigs.

There are several obstacles encountered in developing this kind of business, including limited knowledge of business management as well as limited access to capital. To overcome this problem these borrowers decided to form one group so it's easier to communicate between members of the group and also easier to get funding.

Ni Nengah, 28 years old, is head of the Jati Ayu group for raising pigs. To increase its funds, Ni Nengah invited group members to participate in the loan program for small businesses from MUK. The loan will be used to purchase food supplies and also a sow. Within six months they will have swine babies ready to sell. The profits will be used to meet the needs of families, especially the children's education and also needed family meals.

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