Faqih’s success story of selling basreng when he was still studying, now he has his own employees

TIME.CO, Jakarta -Moch. Abdullah Faqih successfully graduated from the English Language Education Study Program, Faculty of Teacher Training and Education (FKIP) Muhammadiyah University Surabaya (UM Surabaya) this October.

While studying, he sold fried meatballs or basreng that he made himself. In fact he already has three employees who help his business. Faqih gave his business the name “Basreng Tabaruk” which means basreng of blessings.

In his opinion. The idea of ​​selling basreng came when he was in charge of the Al-Qur’an education park at his home. There are 300 students studying there. He thought this would be a good opportunity to sell. When he started selling, the concept was still very simple, the packaging was less attractive and so on. During his time as a student he learned to understand patterns as a businessman. Then, in 2023, he begins to renew himself until he has three employees.

“Businessmen must have long-term goals and objectives. “I will continue to develop this business even if I have a teaching profession or something else later,” Faqih said, quoted by the UM Surabaya website on Sunday, October 29, 2023.

Now the basreng he produced has successfully entered 50 schools in East Java. Faqih admitted that in a month he could sell 2,500 basreng. His goal is to be able to sell around 10 thousand basreng with 15 flavor variations within a month.

“Now I have my own place of business. “Yes, although it is not very big, there are three employees who start the process of production, packaging and the like,” he said.


Besides having a basreng business, Faqih has various other businesses such as tutoring, cooperatives and catering. “Out of all this, everything still works fine, only the smoothest thing is basreng,” Faqih said.

Faqih said his entrepreneurial spirit emerged from his mother, who owned a convection business. His interest in business began when Faqih was in primary school. At that time he often brought snacks to sell to his friends.

When asked about tips for starting a business, Faqih said the key was three things. First, identify your target market before starting a business. Second, identify the product you want to sell. Third, increase relationships so the business moves faster.

As a child, forged in an Islamic boarding school for six years, Faqih admitted that his journey as a student in Tebu Ireng taught him many things. “It’s better to fall many times and try to get up than never to fall,” he said.
