I Ketut Jiwa's story

I Ketut Jiwa live in the village of Manistutu, West Bali. This village is located on a hillside, so for irrigation, sufficient for plantation or for household is difficult to be adequate. Irrigation is only dependant on the small stream flowing through the village where the water is only sufficient during the rainy season. Due to the insufficient water supply, I Ketut Jiwa cannot grow plant or cultivate rice. I Ketut Jiwa plant his farm with corn. And with inadequate fertilizer and quality seedlings, I Ketut Jiwa often did generate maximum yield from his plantation. With this loan received, I Ketut Jiwa planned to purchase fertilizer and quality corn seedlings so that his plantation generate maximum yield.
