We already have a team and in the past few decades we've worked with Indonesian coffee farmers. The main obstacle right now is that we have to have a large enough capital to gather farmers and cover operational costs in order to distribute coffee from farmers.

If you are currently working on a pivot, what have you learned so far?

I learned to get through a crisis like this we must adopt a policy that is fast and can save many people from the death of business. business pivot is a step that we must take, my team and I try to save Indonesian coffee farmers and the Indonesian coffee business by stabilizing prices and trying to meet market needs so that scarcity does not occur. which could lead to coffee farmers and coffee businesses in a position that endangers lives and crises.

we see that in Indonesia efforts to save Indonesian coffee farmers and coffee business has not been seen. where many people focus on the health sector and many in other sectors. whereas Indonesian coffee farmers so far that we see no one has tried to address the coffee farmers and coffee business in Indonesia. we try to be able to help and address Indonesia in the field of coffee agriculture which this sector is one of the largest agricultural sectors in Indonesia.
