Changemaker Story : Eko

September 4, 2017


"I graduated from the machinery vocational high school, and I went to Jakarta to work in hotels and malls as an electrical operator. I repaired machines like TV and washing machine with my welding expertise. I came back to Banjarnegara as I see there was a huge demand for blacksmith here. I am proud when I invented and developed machines for my customer. It’s great to make a living while working on my hobby.

I hope the blacksmith industry in Banjarnegara could be more vibrant by introducing advanced technology so we could work more effectively and efficiently. I wish to make a change on the local blacksmith community who is already settled with traditional welding method."
