ACTNews, MAMUJU REGENCY – Nurlina (39)’s grocery shop has only been running for a year. It is located in Dungkait Village, West Tapalang District, Mamuju Regency, West Sulawesi. The shop sells grocery items and snacks for people in her neighborhood.

Nurlina's only obstacle in running her business is the difficult access to the market where she buys goods to sell. Most of the road is damaged. Hence, shopping for goods is an arduous journey for her.

“I shop for goods only twice a week. That is also if the weather is good. If the weather is bad, I will have to wait," said Nurlina when met on Thursday (1/13/2022).

Recently, Nurlina has not been able to do her activities optimally because she has had an accident. When trimming the branches of a mango tree near her home and stall, she was electrocuted. Luckily, she survived and the accident never weakens her enthusiasm.

On that day, Global Wakaf-ACT provided business capital assistance for Nurlina through the Waqf for MSMEs program that, hopefully, will help her shop grow. []
