SOLO. Giyoto (33) is a member of RZ micro entrepreneur community in Mojosongo ICD. He sells salad and ice cream around his village since 2013. Before working as an ice cream merchant, he used to work as traditional herbalist in Bekasi. However, working as herbalist in Bekasi did not make his life better so he decided to back home and run his current business.
His business is getting better when he was invited to join in RZ micro entrepreneur community by an ICD facilitator in Solo on 2015. By participating in this community, he received business capital assistance, business facility assistance, and regular business training and counseling from RZ.
Now, he could sell his product more than 50 cup in a day. “Lately, I’m trying to advertise and market my product through various social media such as Facebook, Twitter, and Blackberry Messenger,” he said.
After several months, Giyoto could earn up to 700.000 rupiah per month as net profit of his business. ***
