Aang Permana boosts the business of glass fish. With initial capital of hundreds of thousands of rupiah, this man now has a turnover of up to half a billion rupiah. This man born in 1990 glanced at glass fish because the potential of this fish is quite large and has not been optimized by the community. In fact, the surrounding community is reluctant to consume fish called in the Latin as Prambassis Ranga. Aang started the glass fish business in 2014. His initial capital was Rp. 500 thousand and he used it to buy glass fish and simple cooking utensils. Although he did not have a mature business plan, he immediately chose to experiment immediately. Apparently, the glass fish business named Crispy Ikan Sipetek received a pretty good response. Aang decided to quit his job at an oil company. Crispy Ikan Petek is sold for IDR 15 thousand per pack. Aang itself produces around 1,000-1,500 packs per day. His hard work is fruitful at last. Now, Aang can pocketed a turnover of IDR 400-500 million per month. This product has been sold abroad as well as Malaysia and Hong Kong. Aang also employs non-productive aged mothers to help produce Crispy Ikan Sipetek. This is so that they can help with family income. To ensure the availability of glass fish, which is the raw material for its products, Aang partnered with a number of fishermen who are on Lake Cilatah in Cianjur, West Java. In addition to developing the crispy fish business, the man who had studied in the United States for 3 months also developed a freshwater fish farming business. These cultivated fish are supplied to several restaurants in Cianjur and Bandung. Aang Permana has now enjoyed his success.
