EDU Foundation, along with Allianz Indonesia have organized an array of activities packed into one program called PANDAI (Petani Digital Allianz Indonesia). Living up to its elaborated name, the program PANDAI is holding several important trainings regarding Financial Literacy, Digital Marketing, and Warehouse, to be given to farmer groups in Indonesia.
The object of these trainings is to enable farmers into being independent and to market their own products globally through Tanihood online platform, and to improve their knowledge on financial management. Trainings are given using methods such as simulation and active discussion, with hopes that farmers will comprehend the lessons more easily.
The Financial Literacy training is subdivided into several sessions, including: sharing the farmers’ hopes and life aspirations in writings, discussion on money management and game simulations relating to it. As for the Digital Marketing and Warehouse trainings are given directly to the board of KUB Central Agro Lestari.
These array of activities are held from July 29th to 31st 2019 at the KUB Central Agro Lestari in Bumisari village, Purbalingga. In Purbalingga, the village Bumisari–the second largest village after Rembang, is pushing promotions for their tourism such as Curug Duwur which is managed by Kelompok Sadar Wisata.
A total of 30 participants are in attendance to the training, which consists of farmers and the board of KUB Central Agro Lestari, with their main products being coconut sugar and Arenga palm sugar. KUB Central Agro Lestari have several plans they want to move forward with. First of all, KUB Central Agro Lestari wishes the production of sugars will be fully done there, therefore farmers will only be responsible in collecting the sap. For new products, they want to expand and grow other organic commodities, for example vanilla, in order to increase the farmers’ income. Along with vanilla, the production of the high-demanding liquid sugar, hopefully will also become a reality for KUB Central Agro Lestari in the future.
