SANDAKAN: Young entrepreneurs are getting a helping hand to make a start at entrepreneurship, specifically of the mobile type.

A total of 155 people from throughout the state received government-sponsored aid packages in the form of motorcycles, tool boxes and given a basic course for start-up entrepreneurs.

The group received the help from Chief Minister Tan Sri Musa Haji Aman at a mobilepreneur programme by State Giatmara, a unit under the Ministry of Rural and Regional Development (KKLW), here on Sunday.

Also present was the Director-General of KKLW Datuk Borhan Dollah. It was revealed that a total of 291 people in Sabah have been allocated RM2.91 million by KKLW for ventures in mobile entrepreneurship.

Among those receiving the government help were entrepreneurs involved in automobile services, air-conditioning services, spa, tailoring, hair-dressing, motor-cycle repairs, computer services, plumbing and photography.

In February this year, 139 entrepreneurs in the Kota Kinabalu area received similar KKLW help. Musa said the KKLW programme is yet another indicator of the government’s commitment towards helping and empowering the people economically.

Through human resource development and promoting economic and entrepreneurial empowerment, the government wants to raise the quality of life particularly the people in the rural areas.

“These initiatives are in line with national development objectives. The government recognises the important role of the people in the rural areas in terms of building the country’s future. Therefore, they are never marginalized.”

Musa acknowledged the KKLW Minister, Dato’ Sri Ismail Sabri Yaakob who mooted the idea of helping young rural entrepreneurs to start small.
