Merdeka Utara 15 Group's story

Merdeka Utara 15 is a group of four people whose members live in the same village but have different businesses. The group's leader, Dami, shown here with her hand raised, is a married businesswoman. Dami's husband is a fisherman, who spends three days at a time at sea. Dami and her husband live together with their children and take care of household responsibilities together. For seven years, Dami has been selling salted fish in the market. She buys the fish in the morning, processes and dries it, and sells it in the afternoon at the market. The rainy season is an obstacle to the fish-drying process. Dami and the other members of the Merdeka Utara 15 group are requesting financial support from VisionFund Indonesia for the second time to increase their working capital. Dani will use the loan to buy fish and squid. In the future, she hopes to have a smart grandchild and to become an entrepreneur.

In this group: Dami, Denni, Buati , Alin
