BANDUNG-Chairman of the Regional Crafts Council (Dekranasda) West Java Province Netty Heryawan said, we should be able to change the paradigm and mindset when we want to start the entrepreneurship. Although there were suggestions that we should life in a simple way, but it does not mean unable to be rich.
"Precisely as a Muslim we should be rich in terms of property and obedience to Allah SWT, so we can be empowered and empower others in terms of “giving with the right hand while the left hand not allowed to know”. So that the public welfare will be realised," said Netty at the Exhibition Coop-erative of Insan Madani the Indonesian Muslim Intellectuals Association (ICMI) in Pusdai Building West Java, Bandung, Friday (19/2).
Therefore, Netty hopes as Muslims we can fortify and fix the paradigm to be self-employed. And to encourage and give confidence to the younger generation to master in various fields for starting a new business and will not give up and keep trying if it fails.
"There will be many opportunity for the unemployed and women to work in this country, rather than to work as migrant workers," she said.
