SERDANG — The government has allocated RM50 million for individuals including graduates who are keen to start a home-based food business under the PEMULIH NewBiz Financing Programme.
Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said the financing programme through Agrobank was also for the purchase of machines for food business or the purchase of motorcycles for the purpose of food delivery through the e-hailing platform.
