A loan of $900 helped a member to buy two piglets and feed.


Tirta Kusuma Group's story

Housewives in Bali maintain pigs at home to support the family and supplement their husbands' income. This is common for the Balinese people, especially those living in the village. To improve their skills and knowledge, they join a group. In addition to exchanging information, they also get loans because they do not have collateral that can be pledged to banks or other financial institutions to obtain loans. With the pig breeder program from MUK, I Gusti Nyoman of the Tirta Kusuma group feels pig farming could be developed for the welfare of the family. I Gusti Nyoman is a grandmother with three sons and five grandsons. She just resigned from her job as a public servant at a government institution. She encouraged the women and men in her village to have better life and gain knowledge by joining the pig program from MUK. To improve their ability in terms of raising pigs and getting capital for businesses, they formed a group. I Gusti Nyoman will use the loan to buy two piglets and feed. After a six-month loan period, pigs will be ready to sell. The benefits of this effort will be used to support her family's economy and have some money available for savings.

In this group: I Gusti Nyoman, Ni Luh, Ida Bagus, Ni Komang, Ni Nengah, Ni Ketut, I Putu
