This morning, Nurlaela (35) together with her husband and child, came to Klapa Village Public Housing, Pondok Kelapa, Duren Sawit, East Jakarta, to process Public Housing Solution (Samawa) Program's housing unit draw on Saturday (8/31).

It is our dream to have our own place to live

"I'm really grateful to get this call. It is our dream to have our own place to live. Moreover to have it without paying down payment (DP)," she expressed while watching her child who playineg at Children Playground (CPG) of Klapa Village Public Housing.

Her husband, Hasanudin mentioned that his family is currently renting a tenement at RT 06 RW 16, Duren Sawit Urban Village, East Jakarta.

At first, he explained, his side gained information about Samawa program from mainstream media. Then, he continues to find out more information about this program via media social because he really wants a house to live with his family.

Last February, he registered the program at East Jakarta Mayor Office. Previously, he proposed for unit type 36, but he didn't meet the requirements thus he tried for type 24 with facility of 1 room. Then, after waiting around 6 months, he got a call to participate in housing unit draw for today.

According to him Samawa program could be a solution for Jakartans with lower middle economy. House units in Jakarta are mostly sold with high price and DP that is difficult for people with lower middle income to buy it.

"I really hope our family can live in this place. I also happy seeing my child playing happily in this playground. This is what I need, buying house with zero down payment. It is our dream as Jakartan," he conveyed.
