Tough Condition for Cheap FFB, The Smallholders Strengthen Each Other

InfoSAWIT, IDI RAYEUK – The cheap fresh fruit bunch (FFB) in the past three weeks makes smallholders’ economy in mass nationally. It seems they have no future anymore. Luckily the smallholders in East Aceh help, remind, and strengthen one to another so that they would not do the wrong decision in this tough condition.

Chairman of Asosiasi Petani Kelapa Sawit Indonesia (Apkasindo) Aceh, Sofyan Abdullah and Chairman of Apkasindo East Aceh, Ibrahim Mar told, they helped and strengthened one to the other.

Ibrahim Mar told the help, strengthening ran by meeting many independent smallholders from many groups developed by Apkasindo in Sub district of Rantau Peureulak which is led by Muslidar Danil.

“In the yesterday meeting the smallholders really hoped Apkasindo should struggle for that FFB price would be normal again or even get better as it was before the export ban ran,” Ibrahim Mar said.

Sofyan Abdullah understood what the smallholders complained about but in the same time he asked them to get spirit, be patient, and convinced them that their struggle would pay off maximally. (T5)
