Officials from the Badung regional government have confirmed that they have stopped the cash assistance program for small businesses in the Badung tourism area.
The Head of the Badung Small Business and Trade Union, Made Widiana confirmed that the cash assistance program called PBSU that was initiated by the Badung regional government has officially stopped due to the economic crisis. “Our cash assistance program that targeted the small businesses in the tourism area within the Badung region has come to a halt with the instability of our financial situation at the moment.” Widiana said on Thursday (2/9).
Previously, the Badung regional government had been running a cash assistance program by distributing USD 140 (IDR 2million) to over 900 small business owners who have been running their shops inside the tourism areas in the Badung region since the Covid-19 pandemic struck in 2020. “PBSU was initiated to provide a small capital to our small businesses, especially those who haven’t received the previous cash assistance that was provided by the central government.” Widiana added.
However, Widiana also informed that the people still have another chance to receive cash support that was initiated by the Bali provincial government by enrolling their businesses to the nearby village officials. “People can still have a chance to register themselves and get verified before receiving more cash assistance from the Bali provincial government that will be transferred directly to their bank account.” Widiana concluded.
