Kertha Bakti Group's story

Ni Luh is the head of the Kertha Bakti group, daily living as a pig farmer. She lives with her husband and 3 children. Ni Luh developed her pig business by borrowing 1,600,000 IDR from MUK. From the sale of 4 pigs during this period, Ni Luh managed to get a profit of 750,000 IDR. The gain is very helpful to the family's finances as they are currently experiencing difficult times due to the increasingly expensive necessities of life. Ni Luh, with the Kertha Bakti group, decided to continue borrowing from MUK, due to their being especially helpful in developing their pig businesses. Because the price of pigs and pig feed is growing, Ni Luh expects an increase in borrowing in the next period. She wants to increase her business by keeping local pigs for 'pigroll'. The 'pigs for pigroll' are usually only kept for two or three months and then sold. Ni Luh needs a new loan to purchase 4 local pigs and feed for them. Her husband supports her business by helping her to feed the pigs and clean the barn. Ni Luh saves her profit because she has a dream of renovating her kitchen. One of the group members couldn’t attend the meeting because she just had a baby.
