ACTNews, CENTRAL JAKARTA This Ramadan, MSMEs who are assisted by Global Wakaf-ACT not only receive capital assistance and supervision but also collaboration deals. Global Wakaf-ACT partners with the assisted MSMEs to supply free snacks to mosques and boarding schools. The collaborations aim to help MSMEs to keep being productive during Ramadan.

Manager of Productive Economy Waqf-ACT Sukorini said, the system was hoped to increase MSMEs’ profit to support the implementations of Global Wakaf-ACT activities in the form of iftar distribution. “Snacks were all bought from the Global Wakaf-supported MSMEs in Jabodetabek,” said Sukorini.

On Wednesday (04/28/2021) for example, 500 portions of snacks were bought from MSMEs to be distributed in Al Falah Mosque, Central Jakarta. Sukorini explained, the iftar meals and snacks were distributed to the mosque caretakers, residents around the mosque, online motorbike taxi drivers, and peddlers.

Besides snack distribution, Global Wakaf-ACT also has Mobile WMUMI to display various homemade snacks produced by the assisted MSMEs. The Van which has been modified now has stacking shelves to display the MSME products.

“We hope more people will know about MSME empowerment programs by Global Wakaf-ACT, either through takjil distribution or Mobile WMUMI. Hopefully, this can be in line with the strengthening of the MSMEs' economy,” said Sukorini.[]
