It’s inspiring to see our fellow Malaysians achieving success merely by following their passion and doing what they love. Though many of us wish to do the same, it’s hard when you don’t have the capital to do so. It’s also disheartening when you’ve already started your business and still making a loss.

Fortunately, Budget 2022 has a comprehensive list of incentives and financial aid, which includes helping current and aspiring entrepreneurs to grow!

3. Your food truck dreams are finally coming true!

Micro Financing-i ME2

Bajet2022 Food Truck

Hawkers and small traders can now request loans with a 0% interest rate to upgrade their businesses to food trucks, or buy carts, trailers or tri-wheels – this includes window dressing and special equipment or machine costs too! Just a heads up that there’s a 1% rate for management cost for the collection of repayment from the borrower, yeah?

Management cost at the rate of 1% on the collection of repayment from the borrower.

  • Food truck: RM60,000 – RM100,000
  • Food cart/Trailer: RM40,000 – RM60,000
  • Tricycle/Tri-Wheel: RM20,000 – RM40,000

And that’s all there is to the start-up business aspect!

However, there is so much more to Budget 2022 that’s beneficial to netizens in every possible way!

Want to find out what other benefits you’re eligible for? Check out the Budget 2022 website so you don’t miss anything! Let’s make full use of our government’s help (thanks, guys!) to make 2022 the start of a new hope.
