Why did you choose a career as a TaniSquad?
“It all started with my hobbies, I love to travel and climb mountains. In 2017 I went up to Rinjani, after coming down I mingled with residents, most of them are farmers. At that time, I heard stories of those who were less fortunate to become farmers because ‘tengkulak’ set prices too low for their agricultural products. Likewise, on my other trips, I always hear farmers’ complaints regarding their welfare. Then at the end of 2018, by chance, I became a Tour Guide for one of the VPs at TaniHub Group, and was finally offered to join. I chose to join because I think this company has the intention to prosper the Indonesian farmers.” (Fahmi Noer Ilham – Product Development Specialist)
