On the other hand, producing cost of own funding farmers 26% was lower than loan funding farmers. This condition causes the income of own funding rice’s farmers per hectare 56% was greater than the income of loan funding farmers. Moreover, with the family spending were not too different, capital creation of own funding farmers was greater than loan funding farmers. Almost half of the farmers have a medium level of capital creation capability, the remaining one third was more classified as high capital creation and one-eighth was classified as low.
