A loan of $1,675 helped a member to purchase piglets, feed and also snacks for her kiosk.

Sari Rasa Group's story

Sari Rasa group succeeded in repaying their loan even though it was a few days from the due date. This was due to the inexpensive price of piglets today. Most of the group members keep sows and sell piglets. Because they are selling the piglets at the same time, the price of piglets goes down.

Ni Luh, as head of the group, feels the same thing. Luckily, she has an additional business as a farmer so that she does not lack everyday items. Ni Luh and all members of Sari Rasa group agreed to continue borrowing but changed the method of raising pigs to increase the selling price.

Sari Rasa group have resumed their lending from MUK. To increase the price of piglets, they changed the method of raising their pigs. Some members still keep sows and the other members keep super quality pigs for fattening or local pigs for pork roll. With this method, the sales of pigs will remain in this second group only. The members who have sows, will sell their piglets to the other members who raise pigs and fatten them for pork roll. The members who fatten pigs for pork roll will sell their pigs to the big buyers.

Ni Luh, as the head of the group, wasn’t able to attend the meeting because of illness. She was represented by the treasurer, Ni Nyoman. Ni Nyoman, in addition to being a pig breeder, also has a small kiosk in front of her house. She will use her portion of the loan to purchase piglets, feed and also snacks for her kiosk. She hopes all the efforts that they make will go well and that can earn a satisfactory profit.
