ACTNews, BANGKA REGENCY – Previously, Mustika Sari (31) sold sausages to earn additional income, while her husband sold vegetables. The majority of Mustika’s customers were children who study the Quran at the Quran Learning Center. She sold her merchandise in Balun Ijuk Village, Merawang District, Bangka Regency.

However, last year, she stopped selling sausages due to fewer buyers. “Because of the Covid-19 pandemic, children study at home. Hence, my customers were reduced,” said Mustika, Tuesday (11/9/2021).

Mustika tried her best to earn additional money because she must support her two children. She decided to sell vegetables and fish with her husband. “Every morning, I sell at the market. Then, I peddle my vegetables around the village,” she said.

The business has only been running for one year but has already given significant results. “Alhamdulillah, I can meet my family’s needs through this business. I have a toddler. I can buy milk for my child from selling,” said Mustika.

To support Mustika’s struggle, Global Wakaf-ACT provided business capital from Waqf for MSMEs. Hopefully, this program can help Mustika to develop her business.[]
