Seeing the Impact of Event of the PON XX Papua for Merchants and MSMEs – Merchants in Mimika warmly welcomed the National Sports Week (PON) XX Papua which took place at Bumi Cenderawasih on October 2-15, 2021.

“If there are a lot of people like this, we can earn money, selling,” said Fitriyah (55), a food vendor in Mimika, Papua, Friday (1/10).

The mother with seven children has lived in Mimika for almost 25 years and this is the first time she has experienced a major national event, such as PON XX. Trying to take her luck, Fitriyah opened a stall in front of the Mimika Sport Center to sell food, including cireng, pentol, crackers, macaroni, and various beverages.

“I’ve been selling here for three days. Yes, it’s okay, yesterday I got Rp. 300,000,” said the woman from Lamongan, East Java.

In fact, Fitriyah was disposed to contract land worth Rp. 2 million to open her stall during the implementation of the Papua PON. “Usually, I sell it at home, near the Gorong-Gorong Market, Mimika. Yes, I sell cireng, pentol, drinks,” she said.

Not only that, Fitriyah also ordered a banner with the theme of PON XX to decorate her stall as a step to enliven the four-year sporting event.

After PON, Fitriyah hopes that later there will be a big event in Mimika so that she can use it to earn money.
