Ni Nengah Sulasmi's story

Ni Nengah Sulasmi is very diligent in farming her cows so that they are healthy and plump. Her breeding cow has produced two offspring that is not ready to be sold yet. To reap the reward, Ni Nengah Sulasmi needs to wait patiently for another 2 or 3 months for the little cows to mature and ready to be marketed. However, Ni Nengah Sulasmi is very enthusiastic about her business that she bought a share of a male cow to increase her farm's production. Most of Sulasmi's time is spent on farming her cows and pigs. She is fortunate that her eldest son that just finished high school starts helping in the farm by procuring grass for feeds. Ni Nengah Sulasmi's livelihood is dependent on her far,. Her husband works as a contract labor without steady income. Ni Nengah Sulasmi is planning to purchase a male cow that she plans to farm for 5-6 month to maturity and then sell for profit. So she is applying for a second loan from Kiva and Dinari for this purpose. She is very hopeful that the improving the farm's profitability may help her family's economic situation, especially with growing daily expenses and her 2 children needs fund to continue their education.
