Husna himself admitted that he was interested in the Micro Business Capital Waqf program because there was a value of da'wah contained in it. And the value of this syiar is reflected in various activities, one of which is through training. "In the past, there were also those who wanted to cooperate with this mosque regarding this capital assistance, but we have the principle of wanting to broadcast Islamic teachings and goodness. So, it is not the nominal seen, but blessings that arise from all forms of activities carried out, "said Husna.

They also try to keep improving. Like this together to try selling online. Only a few sellers are able to market their business online. Slowly Husna continues to encourage them by providing education so that when they enter the virtual world, their sales activities can be maximized.

Apart from seeing the physical changes in his sales, Husna was also aware of the spiritual development of the merchants. "Alhamdulillah, now, apart from physical changes such as the wheels (wagons), they were not proper, so they are good and easy to see. There are also non-physical changes, namely spiritual changes that thank God are visible. Here there is also a routine recitation every Saturday, those who are free to often attend too, "he added.

Husna hopes that with the presence of this Micro Business Capital Waqf, these business actors will not only become beneficiaries but also beneficiaries, and also this program is evenly carried out in various mosques in Tasikmalaya. "In the future, we hope that these business actors can also contribute to its distribution. The program can also be evenly distributed in every mosque and hopefully later it can reach other business actors who really need capital elsewhere, "concluded Husna. []
