In this training, participants are taught how to provide traditional snacks and cookies such as biscuits, kastengel (Dutch-Indonesian cheese cookies), kue lumpur, chocolate mousse cake.
"Traditional snack and cookies are highly requested in Ramadan Month," Andri stated, Monday (5/6).
According to him, this training becomes a solution to reduce unemployment rate in Central Jakarta by developing home industry.
"We expect this training to increase local residents' economy. Because starting from hobby, people can develop their skill in this training and aim to have their own small business. If it is done wholeheartedly, I am sure they can turn it into big business," he expressed.
In this training, Nakertrans Department also supports participants by giving stove and mixer for free. It is given symbolically by Andri Yansyah to the participant's representatives in this event.
