Ni Ketut Murni's story

Although a kindergarten teacher, Ketut Murni still has time to raise pigs. Ketut Murni always helps her husband, Gusti Made Dana, who works as a driver. Ketut Murni raises pigs with an initial capital of Rp.1,000,000. (Translator’s note: 1 US$ fluctuates between Rp9,000-10,000.00). Ketut Murni bought 4 piglets to be fattened. Ketut Murni raise these piglets for 6 months, and could buy for Rp.800,000 and sell for Rp.1,000,000/pig. Profit is Rp. 50,000/pig after decucting feed cost. Ketut Murni feed her pigs 2x/day mornings and evenings. Besides feeding rice and wheat clippings, she also fed banana, talas leaves, and banana trunks. Before feeding she bathe the pigs until clean, and also clean the stall. Ketut Murni is member of a pig farmer group that works together with Dinari foundation, and will make payment at the end of the 6 months.
