For fish farming business people, capital is the main issue that is often the main concern. Not a few are indebted to middlemen because of difficulties in obtaining access to financing from banks, resulting in increased operational costs and lower net profit.
There are two characteristics of productive debt (loans) that cultivators should pay attention to. The loan can increase income in the future and can increase the value of wealth in the future. However, these two characteristics must be considered carefully so that they do not become a problem in the future.
To increase the financial literacy of farmers, eFishery and Lifepal discussed the issue of accounts payable and borrowing for fish farming business needs at the Instagram Live eFishery x Lifepal event last week.
At the event, Diajeng Reisa Manik, Financing & Risk Manager of eFisheryMall spoke with Aulia Akbar, CFP®, Financial Educator from Lifepal, around smart funding for cultivators in Indonesia, especially about how to take debt with good calculations to ensure positive business development.
