The old model is synonymous with the traditional way, where people carry out salt-making activities by relying on natural resources and existing human resources so that it is still very dependent on the weather or climate and in the old model the production process takes 2 to 4 days for one production so it is inefficient in terms of time and has an impact on the least amount of production so that implications for the total income of only around Rp. 700,000 per month per person. Meanwhile, the new model has the support provided by the government both through regulation and capital so that it can increase income to 3.5 to 4,000,000 per month per person.
