In conducting this field survey, representatives from Puskas Baznas i.e Muhammad Hasbi Zaenal accompanied by LAZ Baitulmal Hidayatullah (BMH) representative, Mr. Afan, the preacher of Agropreneur Boarding Schools (Pesantren Agroprenuer). Agropreneur Boarding Schools is a pesantren specifically for orphans and poor people, besides learning the religious sciences, they are also taught modern farming methods, hydroponic and skills to become an Agroprenuer later when they grow up.

In fact this village has great potential for agricultural products to be developed. It's just that the main problem faced is the difficulty of accessing micro-capital and market reach, so that this potential cannot be extracted.

Through a program that will be developed by LAZ Baitulmal Hidayatullah (BMH), in this village they plan to establish a sharia savings and loan cooperative unit located in the Agroprenuer Pesantren. This cooperative is intended to provide farmers with access to micro-capital.
