Pigy Lestari Group's story

Pigy Lestari group consists of housewives who own small scale pig farms. The group works together with DINARI to obtain training and funding, and the group has reaped a lot of rewards from the cooperation. In the past, the businesses were managed in simple traditional manner due to limited funding. With DINARI's help, the group managed to grow its businesses and profitability, increasing its profit from $25-32, to $43 per pig due to improving quality. When the group applied for its first loan, it had 11 members. Currently, 6 of those members managed to set up their own farms and exited the group. Now the group has 6 members, with 1 new member. Te Pigy Lestari group is applying to join DINARI's pig farming program managed by DINARI foundation, and seeking a 6 month loan.
