Date 19 Januari 2019
President Joko Jokowi Widodo on Saturday inspected the distribution of Smallholder Business Credit (KUR) and Tani Card, a debit card specifically issued for farmers to purchase subsidized fertilizer, in Leuwigoong Village, Garut Regency, West Java province
On that occasion, the President also advised the Government assistances recipients to wisely use the KUR funds and not spend it for consumption goods. Use the funds only to cover production costs, he said.
President Jokowi also cited an example of one farmer named Asep who used his loan money to cover production costs such as land rent, workers salary, fertilizer and seeds. Furthermore, the President also suggested farmers to calculate the money borrowed from bank carefully. (EN/AGG/ES)
