The Portrait of Young Successful Farmer

By Afrianti Eka Pratiwi - October 28, 2022


According to data from the Badan Pusat Statistik (BPS), the number of farmers in Indonesia as of 2019 reached 33.4 million people. Sadly, only 8% of young farmers aged 20 - 39 years old still contribute in agriculture industries. That’s why it is not surprising if this country is threatened by a farmer regeneration crisis.

Behind this astonishing fact, Fahru Rozi, one of CROWDE's young farmers is trying to prove that agriculture still has a future. This 34-year-old youth from Garut, West Java, chose to devote himself to being a farmer in his homeland.

Fahru helps his family manage a chili plantation and continues to innovate to advance the agricultural industry. In this modernization and prestige, Fahru is not ashamed to carry out his mandate as a farmer.

For him, the farming profession he is currently carrying is the best choice that God has given him. By becoming a farmer, he can help his family and share the benefits with others through his chili plantation.

Fahru's story inspires youth to contribute to the agricultural industry. Fahru proved that a bright future can also be achieved through the farming profession.
