A loan of $550 helped to buy piglets (Membeli anak babi).

Ni Ketut Janji's story

Ni Ketut Janji is having an optimistic view about life even though she is more than 50 years old. She has been in the business of raising pig for years. With this business she has been able to help her family's economy.

She usually raises 2-3 piglets in one time. She cannot afford to raise more than that. She can buy the piglets from her friend for IDR 270 thousand (around USD 30) per piglets. She then raises them for 5-6 months and re-sell them again for IDR 1 million (around USD 107) per pig. She can earn a profit of IDR 400 thousand (around USD 43) / pig from this.

She is now in the 6 month pig farming program from DINARI. She hopes she can earn more money from this.
