A loan of $1,050 helped a member to buy three superior piglets to raise.

Sombang Lestari Group's story

The Sombang Lestari Group's new loan is for the same amount as their last loan and for the same members of the group. They need a new loan for their businesses because they have a strong will to become successful pig breeders. The loan will be used to improve their business by purchasing superior piglets or a sow. The group can pay off the whole loan on time, and they can sell the pigs for a good price. The price for pork is about 25,000 IDR per kilogram.

Ni Kadek, the head of the group, maintained three pigs and they all sold. She gained a profit of 750,000 IDR after deducting the cost. She is really grateful for that. Now she can use the profit to renovate her house a little bit and support her children's education. During the last loan period, she did not have any problems. All of the pigs grew well. She thanks the lenders, Kiva and MUK, for supporting her business.

Ni Kadek will use her new loan to buy three superior piglets for 300,000 IDR a piece. She has a plan to maintain them for fattening. She hopes MUK and Kiva will always support her and the group, not only with the loan but for training. Ni Kadek sits in the front row, second from the right.
