The city administration of Depok, West Java, has vowed to build 1,000 kiosks for micro enterprises in the city starting this year until 2021. It has so far conducted a location study and issued a regulation on the construction project.

Depok Cooperatives, Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises and Trade Agency head Mohammad Fitriawan said Thursday that the construction was the realization of Depok Mayor Mohammad Idris Abdul Shomad’s campaign promise made ahead of the mayoral election.

“The construction of the 1,000 kiosks has been outlined in the 2016-2021 mid-term regional development plan. The kiosks will be provided for free, of course with some requirements,” Fitriawan said, as quoted by tempo.co.

Micro enterprises are those with less than Rp 50 million (US$3,750) in capital and no more than Rp 300 million in annual revenue.  

Fitriawan further said that 200 kiosks would be built this year, once the study was completed. “We are now studying sellers to receive the facilities.” (vny)
