"We are preparing a takjil trading location in Taman Spora, this location is quite strategic because it is easily accessible to the community," said Head of Trade, S Sumatra Cooperative, Small Micro Medium Enterprises, Trade and Industry Agency Hendro in Painan on Monday.
In addition to the extensive Spora Park, in that location there is also a representative parking lot, the playground is in one area with the Baiturrahman Painan Grand Mosque.
"While waiting for the time to break the fast the community can spend time in the park or in the neighborhood of the mosque, after entering when breaking the fast they can easily buy a variety of menus sold and then can perform Maghrib prayer," he said.
In facilitating the location of the trade, it cooperates with a number of banks in the local area.
"The bank prepares tents, chairs, tables and more. In return, we give them the opportunity to promote their various superior products, "he said.
He revealed that the provision of facilities to traders was carried out for free in the hope of many participating traders.
The activity, he continued, not only had an impact on the traders but also the community and cleanliness and orderliness of the environment.
"For traders the impact is clear from free to buying and selling which is expected to increase because traders are placed in one location," he said.
Furthermore, the district government through the relevant agencies will be easier to supervise the materials used by traders in preparing their merchandise, whether it is harmful to health or not because it is in one location.
