How do the lunars pay the troops in the provinces?

A thought occured, the lunar field around 200 troops in balazar. The place has no local forging and no noted mineral wealth? Troops usually need a bit of cash to spend in the inns etc. How do the lunars finance the troops in the field? The supply caravan would need to bring the coinage into the area? Or would credit facilities be available backed by the lunar government? You can't pay all your troops in pigs, how about trinkets to trade with the balzaring natives?

Now what if a group of enterprising rebels stopped the supply caravan cutting off food supplies and gaining freshly minted imperials in the process?
