ACTNews, SPECIAL REGION OF YOGYAKARTA – Parjiyanti has been racking her brain to develop her laundry. Despite having no washing machines, she runs the laundry to provide an additional income for her family.

“My husband works at a wood processing plant. I opened the laundry to help support my two children," said Parjiyanti when Aksi Cepat Tanggap (ACT) Yogyakarta met her at her house in Prawirodirjan Village, Gondomanan District, Special Region of Yogyakarta, Saturday (9/25/2021).

Though her capital is limited, she is determined to make her business grow.

To boost Parjiyanti's spirit, Global Wakaf-ACT provided her with business capital assistance through Waqf for MSMEs program with the hope that Parjiyanti’s laundry can run smoothly.

“Alhamdulillah, I hope that I can buy a washing machine with assistance from Global Wakaf – ACT. For now, I want to buy a scale to weigh the laundry,” explained Parjiyanti.

Global Wakaf - ACT also provided assistance for two other beneficiaries in Prawirodirjan Village that day. []
