The highlight of J&T Express's 5th anniversary at the end of August 2020 was very lively with a myriad of prizes from various series of programs being run. The most anticipated program is random prize drawing through receipt numbers for the period July 15 2020 to August 25 2020 with a total prize of 4 billion rupiah, which is amazing, namely the Grand prize 2 House Units worth a total of 1 billion rupiah, 1 unit Toyota Fortuner, 1 unit Toyota Innova, and 1 Mitsubishi Xpander Unit.
One of the luckiest J&T Express customers to get the Grand Prize of 1 housing unit is Mrs. Hj. Mirna who comes from the city of Makassar, South Sulawesi. She expressed how happy to hear the news as if she did not believe she won a prize of this size. "First contacted, I was shocked, didn't believe I could get the prize and I was very happy that my feelings were mixed," said Hj, Mirna via a video call at the Makasar J&T Express Office.
At that time, a poster of J&T Express Anniversary was displayed at Drop Point Barombong, South Sulawesi where Hj. Mirna sent the package, she just pray that one of the deliveries in that period will be a blessing. Unexpectedly, when the Grand Prize drawing was witnessed by the Ministry of Social Affairs, Social Service and Notary Public, the delivery receipt number became the one that emerged as a verified winner.
With the house prize she received, she intended to be able to use it to fund the construction of a prayer room and business capital, because the mosque her built had been stopped for 3 years because the personal costs he had collected for its construction were not sufficient. This prayer room is planned not only for families but also for use by the surrounding community.
Meanwhile, the venture capital is intended to develop the small business that she has been in for 7 years. In her daily life, Hj. Mirna runs her business, namely selling clothes. She pioneered this business by starting to market to neighbors around where he lived, at home by utilizing a car garage and trying to go online through Facebook until it continued to increase to a further reach. Every day there are always up to 30 orders that she has to send and she entrusts them to use J&T Express because it serves 365 days of delivery.
However, the pandemic this year had an impact on his business and there was a decline in sales, she also experienced difficulties when the Large-Scale Social Restrictions (PSBB) were set and a lockdown was imposed in his area, resulting in her business being on hiatus for 2 months, she also had to restart so that her business could continue last. Therefore Hj. Mirna intends to fix her business by planning to build a special shop for the clothing business she runs.
The J&T Express Anniversary program made Hj. Mirna is very grateful while expressing her gratitude. She also conveyed her hopes to J&T Express on its 5th anniversary this year. "Thank you very much J&T Express, thank you also for the gift which is wow ... very much, my hope in the future for J&T Express is that it will be more successful, more prosperous, and the more fortunate to use the delivery", she said.
