Business Capital Waqf Helps to Open Second Branch “Jagonya Ayam Geprek”

The Covid-19 pandemic nearly bankrupted Mumun's Ayam geprek (spicy crushed chicken) business. She had run out of funds to keep her company running. However, her company has grown, and she is now ready to open a second branch.

ACTNews, SERANG – Muntijah alias Mumun's business has also been impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic (29). Her Ayam geprek business, which has been in operation for three years, has seen its turnover drop by half. The "Jagonya Ayam Geprek" business is the Mumun family's only source of income.

In May 2021, the resident of Serang, Banten, met with Global Wakaf-ACT to help his business. Mumun received capital and business monitoring through Waqf for the MSMEs program.

"I was looking for capital assistance. Alhamdulillah, I came across Global Wakaf-ACT. I avoid loan sharks at all costs," Mumun said.

Mumun's business is gradually improving. Her businesses that used to require only five kilograms of chickens per day can now consume 10-16 kilograms per day. Mumun, with the help of her husband, is establishing a branch of Jagonya Ayam Geprek in Taktakan, Serang.

Renaldi, a Global Wakaf-ACT Business Assistant who accompanied Mumun's business, explained that resurrecting a business that was about to collapse due to the pandemic required special attention and trust. Business owners must adopt an unyielding mindset. Mumun possesses this spirit.

"Mrs. Mumun and her husband are gradually rebuilding their business with waqf funds. The value of waqf capital does not decline," Aldi explained.

As of December 29, 2021, Global Wakaf-ACT has assisted over 5,000 business owners across Indonesia. The total amount of waqf funds distributed exceeded IDR 7 billion. []
