Explorative research method, Triangulation, qualitative approach. The results showed that traders and fishermen are still a few who know the type of saving instruments. A small portion of income has been deposited in savings, gold, land and houses. Although already bought land, the house by way of credit, deposits had never been. Banking is considered a lot of time-consuming business work. Respondents do not understand the investment portfolio.

Most Traders-Fishermen use the instrument 'arisan' only, easier transactions than banking.
