Suara.com – The list of companies of Haji Isam and his children was highlighted after a report stated that two children from a wealthy family from Kalimantan suddenly lost assets worth IDR 4.55 trillion.
After the shares were sold out, now the wealth of Haji Isam’s two children still has IDR 1.98 trillion remaining. The two of them, Liana Saputri and Johny Saputra, are known to have a hobby of collecting shares from palm oil issuers from the Pradik Gunatama (PGUN) company.
Despite losing trillions of rupiah, this amount is only a tip of Haji Isam’s wealth. The owner of the real name Samsudin Andi Arsyad is known as crazy rich in Batulicin, Tanah Bumbu Regency, South Kalimantan Province.
Haji Isam’s coal business line was not built overnight. Even Haji Isam built his business from zero to success. But now, it is said that Haji Isam’s income reaches IDR 40 billion per month.
Haji Isam initially entered the coal industry by working in a company owned by residents of Surabaya Chinese descent. Haji Isam used this time as an employee to learn how to run a business until he finally had the courage to open his own coal business.
Now, Haji Isam has built a business empire through the PT Jholin Group which consists of PT Jhonlin Baratama, PT Jhonlin Marine and Shipping, and also PT Jhonlin Air Transport. It didn’t stop there, Haji Isam even founded PT Jhonilin Agro Raya (JAR) South Kalimantan, a company operating in the biodiesel sector, which was inaugurated directly by President Joko Widodo.
The factory has a production capacity of 1,500 tons per day, with an estimated factory investment value of IDR 2 trillion.
“By saying bismillahirrahmanirrahim, today I inaugurate the PT Jhonlin Argo Raya biodiesel factory in Tanah Bumbu Regency, South Kalimantan,” said President Jokowi at the inauguration ceremony which was broadcast virtually, Thursday (21/10/2021) two years ago.
Even though he is now known as a rich businessman, Haji Isam was once a laborer. He previously worked odd jobs ranging from being a woodworker, logger, loader and transport driver, even as a motorbike taxi driver.
Having gone through various phases of life, Haji Isam has grown into a humble person. Her family is known to be very simple, including the lives of her two children.
A video circulating on Tiktok shows one of Haji Isam’s sons, Johny Saputra, wearing a very simple appearance when he was caught watching a concert. He was caught on camera standing in front of singer Cakra Khan’s stage wearing a plain white t-shirt, jeans and sneakers.
