A loan of $800 helped a member to repair the duck coop and to buy duck food.


Jasmine Group's story

Dian is the leader of a 4-member loan group called “Jasmine”. The group members live in Susukan, a village in the east near Jakarta. Dian, 41 years old, has three children: Sandra, 18 years old; Arjun, 15 years old; Lira, 12 years old.

Dian has a duck farm behind her house. After two years, she increased her farm, having started with only 20 ducks and now raising almost 100 ducks. Dian enjoys this business because ducks are easily maintained; they leave and come home by themselves.

Dian and her group are requesting financial support from VisionFund Indonesia for the 2nd time so that they can increase their working capital . Dian will use this loan to buy duck food and to repair the coop. Dian's main obstacle in running this business is the rainy season, which produces many caterpillars which the ducks eat, whereupon they get sick and die. Dian dreams of sending her child to the doctor faculty.

In this group: Dian, Sulastri, Arie, Syai Atu
