Usaha Mulia Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) is located in Kandangsari, Sukoharjo Village, Nganglik District, Sleman Regency. This NGO was formed by residents of Kandangsari Hamlet in July 2020 in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic. Efforts to empower and strengthen community resilience were initiated through the cultivation of catfish in a 1 m diameter concrete bus. In the early stages, 45 concrete buses have been built independently by the community consisting of 600 people or 65 heads of families. This program is expected to be able to produce consumption fish and its processed products to meet nutritional needs, while increasing the level of income and welfare of the community. A number of KSM partners took part in the development of this catfish cultivation, including Aquaculture Study Program, Department of Fisheries UGM, Department of Fisheries and Marine Affairs of DIY Province, Fisheries Division of Sleman Regency, PDAM of Sleman Regency, and Times Indonesia Regional Yogyakarta.
Until now, the construction of concrete buses as a container for catfish cultivation has reached more than 60 units, each KSM member has 2-6 units. In 2021 this community empowerment program will continue to be developed so that it is targeted that every household has a concrete bus for catfish cultivation. To realize this, facilitation in the form of production facilities (concrete buses, seeds, and feed) is still very much needed, especially for the underprivileged.
