BANDUNG CITY- Ramadan Bazaar Dharma Wanita The Association of West Java Province successfully earned a turnover of Rp1 billion in two implementation days which began on Monday (5/20/19).
According to Elly Rosita Karniwa, Chairperson of West Java Province Dharma Wanita Persatuan (DWP), this achievement is better than last year's turnover of Rp500 million.
"Turnover may be almost 1 billion. For example, the best booth was 21 million, just yesterday. Not yet the turnover that is now sold. (Stan) We also, ready-to-eat food is sold out every day, "Elly said after the closing of the DWP Bazaar in West Java Province, in the parking area west of Gedung Sate, Diponegoro Street, Bandung, Tuesday (05/21/19).
Elly reported this year's Ramadan Bazaar was more festive than last year. The community's enthusiasm is getting higher thanks to the intense promotion made by word of mouth through regional instruments, as well as campaigns on social media.
Last year 136 bazaars participated in the bazaar, while 200 booths consisted of micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) from various types of businesses.
"The community has understood that we, the Dharma Wanita Persatuan, West Java Province, hold a Ramadan Bazaar every year. Prices can be affordable by them, lower than on the market. We stock it, thank God, it's always there, "Elly said.
After the successful implementation of this year, the DWP of West Java Province is increasingly enthusiastic about holding the same event next year. Elly and friends will make the bazaar even more interesting. "The concept for next year will be different," he said.
West Java Regional Secretary Iwa Karniwa who closed the bazaar greatly appreciated the event held by Dharma Wanita. Moreover, the "mothers" did not use the services of an event organizer (EO) in packing the event.
"This bazaar is one of the implementation of the DWP program in West Java Province along with the regency / city DWP. The amazing thing is from the organizing side, this doesn't use EO. So it is done by us, from us, for us and for the people of West Java, "said Iwa.
According to Iwa, what the women of Dharma Wanita did by providing various basic needs of the community in this bazaar was in line with the West Java Provincial Government's program in controlling commodity prices and suppressing inflation.
"This is informed through social media also through OPD, so that all people get a price that can indeed be reached for their basic needs. Thus this is in line with the government's program to control inflation in national holidays including the fasting month, "he said. (*)
