Andi Syamsuddin Arsyan bin Andi Arsyad was born in Batulici, South Kalimantan in 1977. Haji Isam’s family comes from a village in Bone, South Sulawesi, which is also called the Bugis ethnic area.
Andi Arsyad is a tobacco trader who migrated to South Kalimantan. Haji Isam started his career from the bottom, as a wood transport driver.
When he was young, Haji Isam knew a local coal miner named Johan Maulana. Since 2001 he has been following Johan and learning how to manage growth.
Then, after feeling like he had enough time for up to two years, he started his own steps in the coal business. With a loan from Pak Johan, he learned to change his life.
“In 2003 Pak Johan loaned me the capital to rent additional heavy equipment,” said Haji Isam.
Become Haji Isam as an implementing contractor at PT Arutmin Indonesia, which is part of PT Bumi Resources Tbk owned by the Bakrie family, under the banner of CV Jhonlin Baratama. After this business spread, CV changed to PT Jhonlin Baratama.
