ACTNews, PADANG – Global Wakaf-ACT, through capital and business assistance to micro-business owners, continues to spread benefits. Jasmaniar (50), a woman who depends on her life from selling breakfast meals, felt the benefits from Global Wakaf-ACT.

Global Wakaf-ACT team visited Jasmaniar, who was selling in the Lubuk Begalung Nan XX sub-district, Wednesday (7/28/2021). The mother of three children reveals that her selling business has experienced a decline in turnover since the Covid-19 pandemic because most of her customers are students.

“I have to find another way to sell my sales. I decided to move the location even though it is far. The previous location was near my house,” said Jasmaniar. Previously, Jasmaniar traded beside Public Junior High School 24 Padang.

Jasmaniar admitted that she was happy and grateful for the capital and business assistance from Global Wakaf-ACT. For her, this was invaluable sustenance during the Covid-19 pandemic.

"Alhamdulillah, O Allah, finally I was bestowed with sustenance. Thank you, ACT, and the community who care about the fate of sellers. Now, I am even more optimistic,” she added.[]
