BATANG. Saturday (19/08), Mustofiyah, Empowered Village Facilitator in Berdaya Kalangsono Village, Banyuputih, Batang visited Pariyah’s house, a lontong maker in the empowered village of Rumah Zakat. The visit at this time to see the activities of the Rumah Zakat’s empowerment in the empowered village.
When met at her home, Pariyah (67th) is busy arranging banana leaves to make lontong with his daughter Musrikah. ” In every morning my activity is like this,” said Pariyah.
Initially, this lontong business was running smoothly, but since starting to indebted to the daily cooperative whose interest strangled her economy began to worst. Currently, the family must work hard to pay off the interest. “My work doesn’t make any profit, the money from the sale just to pay the mortgage, I feel tired like this,” said her.
Until Rumah Zakat offers the capital assistance funds without interest /Riba and given the understanding that Interest/Riba is a sin then Pariyah determined to pay off the debts. “Alhamdullilah, since there is capital assistance from Rumah Zakat, slow but sure I can pay off my debts and free from the interest/riba. It turned out Shadaqah is blessings,” said Grandma Pariyah with a smile.
