Djoko Susanto Biography
Born in Jakarta , the sixth of ten children, Djoko was forced to drop out of school at the end of the 1st grade due to the government banning students with Chinese names. He began working on his family’s market stall, selling groceries in Pasar Arjuna market. He quickly became successful when he started selling cigarettes on the stall, opening more stalls, and attracting the attention of Putera Sampoerna, a wealthy cigarette tycoon. They went into business together opening more stalls.
