Creative, Selling via Ladders to Bypass High-Fences
This is not an ordinary business transaction; a seller is shown serving her customer.
Merchants serving buyers near the fence of the Jakarta Convention Centre (JCC), Senayan, Jakarta. Various items available for purchase range from coffee to rice packets, sold for the needs of workers in the JCC building.
The high cost for renting store space in JCC did not discourage these hawkers from conducting business by using ladders. These merchants can be spotted waiting for customers near the wall of JCC.
Here are some photos of these creative merchants:

Similar to a proverb, when there is a will, there is a ladder. LOL.
There is absolutely no way to reduce the slums in that area…
Wow, impressive business. Will a crane be used to serve customers located on the 13th floor?
This is not creative… but GENIUS! LOL.
As long as the Indonesian government is not able to accommodate the needs of the poor, slums will continue to exist. Total salute to them.
I agree…. Goods sold within the building [JCC Senayan] is WAY TOO EXPENSIVE… even the parking cost is expensive.
Creative, innovative, mantap… Whenever it concerns a hungry stomach, you can do whatever as long it’s legal…
How much do they charge for these items? They shouldn’t sell them cheaply either since it does not fully compensate the risk that they are taking. Hopefully business is well, sir and madam.
You can do business in all kind of ways, as long people do not resort to being beggars.
Superb, I’m amazed looking at these pictures. Therefore, don’t resport to protesting or causing trouble when you are not permitted to sell within the complex… but instead just use your brain to think of another solution.
This is in line with a saying from Zimbabwe which states ‘If There’s A Will, There’s A Way’…
This move benefits both the buyers and sellers. Sellers will make profits and buyers will save money.
This business idea is so Indonesian, famous for their creativity.
What do you think? Should these local sellers be allowed to continue or should the JCC building management take action?
