President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo, Monday (01/17), visited Sederhana Market in Bandung city, West Java province.

On that occasion, President Jokowi distributed cash assistance to street vendors and small stall owners at the market. The cash assistance amounting to Rp1.2 million for every vendor is expected to be an additional capital for their businesses that are affected by COVID-19 pandemic.

All vendors seemed to be happy and expressed their enthusiasm welcoming the President.

Iros, a chili seller, said that the assistance given by President Jokowi will be very helpful to develop her business’ additional capital. Likewise, Ade Siti Sarah, a chicken meat seller, was happy to receive the assistance and also prayed for the President.

Alhamdulillah, this market is visited by Mr. President and [I also] receive additional capital [for my business]. I wish Mr. President live a long healthy life. May this additional capital be useful,” Ade added.

After a 30-minute visit at Sederhana Market, President Jokowi headed to Purwakarta regency to inspect the construction of Jakarta-Bandung High Speed Railway (KCJB).

Joining the President during his visit to Sederhana Market were Cabinet Secretary Pramono Anung, Governor of West Java Ridwan Kamil, and Regional Secretary of Bandung City Ema Sumarna. (BPMI of Presidential Secretariat/UN) (AP/MMB)
