For two years in Cipinang, in addition to support two wives with 5 children, it can help finance the manufacture of his family home in the village.
All trade turnover estimated at Cipinang could reach USD 100 million per day. Biggest business is the sale of cigarettes, because not only serve inmates but also staff and officials.
That footage stories poured ex-convict case Bulog funds, Rahardi Ramelan in his village Cipinang Disadvantaged.
Former head of Bulog, said he was likened Cipinang tub underdeveloped villages. Why?

“Yes, because in it there are educational baseball, baseball’s okay, just behind the village rich,” said Rahardi, Wednesday (20/08/2008).
Story in 190 pages thick book that is the story of his experiences while serving a sentence since August 2005 until September 2006. “During my LP instead in fat, added weight 4 pounds because baseball thinking anything,” he continued.
One of the stories are quite interesting diutarakannya matter of business is in prison in East Jakarta numbers. Description Rahardi described, in almost every residential block long Cipinang there are many stalls that provide all the necessities of life like a supermarket.
Various goods supplied ranging from fast food, instant noodles, coffee, rice, and wheat. In fact, fresh vegetables and necessities like toothbrush, flip-flops, and was full of drugs available. This stalls flourished because of the food supplied Prison inmates are considered less standard.

“The quality and taste is very drab, no flavor other than salt,” writes Rahardi.
When new prisons were in operation, conditions are not much different. In new prison, not allowed to cook in the room, despite the fact that there are many kitchens that operate there. There are no less than 10 stalls and stalls selling a variety of foods, such as satay stalls, grilled fish, food stall, vegetables, up to a phone repair stall.

Business pulse

In addition to all the food stalls and daily necessities, one of the lively business and serve as a way to transfer the money by inmates is selling pulses. How can that be?

Family or relatives to use way to transfer a number of pulses to the cell phone number of the inmates. Pulse that has been transferred is then sold to other inmates. In order to get cash fast manner, often times the pulses are sold much cheaper than the market price.

Pulse with a value of Rp 100 thousand sold at Rp 80 thousand, and at certain times can drop to Rp 75 thousand. “Every morning and afternoon, I heard cries of ‘sympathy, emtri, Eksel cepe’. Cry is not only one time but several times and made a few people. Apparently, they are the peddlers pulse trace around the halls of LP in residential blocks, as well as itinerant traders offering satay skewers in the surrounding residential areas, “writes Rahardi.

They are used to peddle pulse is mostly “under the child”, the lowest caste among the prisoners. “Children under” rarely visited family and did not provide a financial contribution for the purposes of room. The main buyers of these pulses are officers and officials and their families.

The rise of trade credit is not due to the high level of mobile phone use in prison, but because the inmates forced their daily financial needs. At the very least, they should provide the cost for money rooms, meal money, buy water, cigarettes, and others. Not to mention for the levies that often occur.

Most of the inmates hang financial fulfillment of families who visit. Transferring money via pulses considered safest of the various “circumcision”. Imagine, if directly give cash during a visit, perhaps none are up to half the inmates.

Productivity of soybean in Indonesia is still relatively lacking. Per year, the total production of soybean Indonesia only reached about 600 thousand tons. Still far below the needs of up to 1.5 million tons / year. What causes it?

Head of Research and Development of the Ministry of Agriculture Haryono said, the lack of production of soybean is caused due to several factors. Therefore, soy is not going to be able to meet the self-sufficiency by 2014.

“Soy is the first difficulty for nothing. For the price, but thank God there is now Rp 7,000 COGS so farmers excited again although a bit slow,” Haryono said when met at the Central Bureau of Research and Development of Ministry of Agriculture, Jalan Ragunan, Pasar Minggu, Jakarta, Thursday (25 / 7/2013).

Haryono said, farmers had planted soybeans are less excited because the price is relatively lower than other commodities such as onion, garlic, corn, and other horticultural products.

In addition, continued Haryono, land issues were a major obstacle. Soybean plantations in Indonesia currently available only about 500 thousand hectares.

“Back then it was 1.2 million hectares, down by itself as competing with corn and others,” he explained.

Third, the lack of factors that affect the productivity of soybean in Indonesia is a seed. Seed and soybean crops vulnerable to pests and diseases.

“In general, soybean planting is more difficult than growing rice and corn. Due to many pests and diseases, rice can last 6 months, if soy just 3 months,” he said.
