Increasing Micro Businesses’ Sales Through Mobile WMUMI

“This is a good program. Since our sales are not always increasing, if we can promote our business through this program, our business can keep going on,” said Dian who sells takjil for iftar in Kampung Bali, Tanah Abang District. That day, Dian felt grateful since out of hundreds of takjil meals distributed to the worshippers, some were bought from her at the WMUMI Mobile.
