ACTNews, CIAMIS – In the morning, people will start the day with their own activities such as working out, sunbathing, or earning a living as Nani does. By carrying 2 to 3 baskets, she peddles around selling her homemade cakes around the Cisaga area, Ciamis Regency.

Every day, Nani walks for three kilometers just to peddle her cakes although sometimes, she feels tired. However, her children at home have been Nani's motivation to keep running her small business.

"Once in a while, my youngest child follows me to peddle since he doesn't want to be left at home. Previously, he was sick while I have no money left since they had been used for our daily needs. There was no other choice but to seek for a loan here and there,” said Nani when met by Global Waqf-ACT Team in mid-July.

In the midst of the difficult situation, selling homemade cakes becomes Nani’s only source of income after her husband was laid-off and only works for odd jobs. However, Nani doesn’t give up. "I continue to peddle because, from my sales result, my family and I can meet our needs," Nani said.

To support Nani’s spirit, Global Wakaf-ACT delivered business capital assistance through Waqf for MSMEs program to her. Hopefully, through his program, Nani can keep running and develop her business.[]
