ACTNews, BANTUL – After a week of self-isolation with his family, Wahono (42) was finally able to peddle his meatballs again around Paduresan Hamlet in Bantul Regency.

He has been selling meatballs for ten years. From this business, he is able to support his wife and three children. "I cook the meatballs at home with the help from my wife and children," said Wahono to Global Wakaf – ACT, Saturday (8/7/2021).

In addition to meatballs, Wahono also sells homemade rengginang, a cracker-like snack made from puffed sticky rice. During the pandemic, Wahono’s businesses have been able to stay afloat in spite of the public activity restrictions. “Alhamdulillah, my meatball business is still running, and there are still orders for my rengginang," he said.

To support Wahyono's business after recovering from Covid-19, Global Wakaf-ACT handed over capital assistance through Waqf for MSMEs. "Alhamdulillah, I will use the capital assistance from Global Wakaf-ACT to buy raw ingredients," said Wahyono.

Global Wakaf-ACT also provided assistance to two other business owners in Bantul that day. Waqf for MSMEs is one of Global Wakaf-ACT's programs to support the struggle of MSMEs affected by the pandemic. []
