PURWAKARTA. Pak Oto is an old man who has a strong spirit to be financially independent. With only a plot of land, he plants various vegetables such as kale, cucumber, and corn. He is a beneficiary of RZ and a member of RZ Farmer Community.
“Previously he only plants vegetables so we try to help him by submitting some sheep breeds to him,” Asep Dedi, a mentor of farmer from RZ, said.
Now he can develop his farm by implementing recycle method; utilizing sheep dung for fertilizer and leaves from his farm for feeding livestock.
“I could be more independent because of the sheep breeds assistance given by RZ, donor and MTN. In addition, until now I’m also regularly mentored by an expert from RZ. Thank you RZ, donors, and MTN for the assistance, may Allah gives greater reward,” Oto said. ***
