The dictionary's answer is 'memberi kuasa'. It's a bit mouthful. Woud appreciate a nicer sounding word, if there's any. Thank you.

mengizinkan OR membenarkan


Explanation:
mengizinkan = give permission
membenarkan = allow

Not 100% exact, but pretty close. Perhaps looking at it in the context of the full sentence would help you decide on the best choice.

However, "memberi kuasa" is only 2 words long, and I suggest you use this as this is the most accurate.
