A loan of $1,450 helped a member to buy three fattening piglets and pig feed.

Sari Mertha Group's story

Ni Luh is a housewife with two children who lives in the village, In order to help her husband, she works as a farmer. Ni Luh is turning again to MUK to borrow 1.5 million IDR for her capital. As part of Sari Mertha group, Ni Luh plans to use this loan to buy three fattening piglets, each costing 400.000 IDR to be raised for six months.
Ni Luh expects the price per kilo of pig to be going up and feed prices going down in the next six months so that the benefits will exceed the previous period.
The profits will be used to finance her children's school fees and to raise capital for her pig business.
One of the members resigned because she already had enough savings as capital to run the business by herself.
