A loan of $1,675 helped a member to purchase a pig and feed.

Putri Sari Group's story

The Putri Sari group is located in Melaya, in west Bali. After this loan period, most of the members now have a sow and they can breed piglets. Breeding piglets requires expertise to make the piglets grow well and healthy. That’s why they need the loan, so they can purchase high quality feed and renovate the cage.

Ni Made has sold all of her piglets so far and she earns a satisfactory profit. She only needs to maintain them for two months. The profit is used for purchasing eggplant seeds and fertilizer. Ni Made and her husband plan to plant eggplant in their garden in this rainy season. Ni Made and all the members of Putri Sari say thank you for the loan and support they have had. This program has proved to increase their standard of living.

The Putri Sari now decide to continue their loans. Having sows, they need the loan to purchase feed and renovate the cage. But some of the members will also use the loan to buy a new sow. They want to breed more piglets.

Ni Made will use her loan to purchase a sow again. She plans to sell the piglets outside her village in order to earn more income. She hopes her plan goes well. All the members also expect the same: the business will go well, the sows will give birth safely, and the piglets will grow healthy. Ni Made will use her profit to support her children's education and fullfill her family's daily needs.

Three of the previous members have resigned and been replaced with new members.

In this group: Ni Made, Ni Putu, Ni Luh, Ni Ketut, Ni Wayan*, Ni Ketut, Ni Nyoman, Ni Wayan, Ni Ketut, Ni Made, Jero*
