President Jokowi: Cooking Oil Cash Assistance Distribution Runs Well
President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo distributed a number of social assistances for beneficiaries and traders at Anom traditional market and Bangkal Baru traditional market in Sumenep regency, East Java province, Wednesday (04/22).
The President said that the distribution of Cooking Oil Direct Cash Assistance (BLT) is going well.
“The distribution of BLT Cooking Oil is still in process, everything is going well. I haven’t heard any issue in the field that hinders it, either through the post office, or through the urban village,” said the President.
In the two markets, the President handed over BLT Cooking Oil of Rp300,000 to the participants of the Family Hope Program (PKH), street vendors, and market traders.
He expressed hope that the assistance can help ease the burden of the public while strengthening their purchasing power.
“We hope that the BLT Cooking Oil subsidy can strengthen people’s purchasing power and ease their financial burden due to the rising price of cooking oil,” he added.
In addition to that, President Jokowi also distributed Working Capital Assistance of Rp1.2 million. He asked the public to use the assistance for additional working capital or business capital.
“You can use Rp1.2 million for working capital. Later you can buy clothes and other needs from the profits,” said President Jokowi. (FID/UN) (EST/LW)
