The Project

Project Owner

Ahmad Saifulzaman Bin Mahadi

Location

Kuala Lumpur

Problem

The cost of in Malaysia is increasing year on year. The university students from the B40 lower income family have been struggling just to survive.

The PTPN loan received can hardly keep up with the student daily expenses. Especially the university students in Kuala Lumpur and Selangor, reliance only on the PTPN loan and minimal financial support provided by their family can be a huge struggle.

This can contribute negatively to their health and academic performance due to lack of money for food as well as having financial stress to fulfil the other daily needs.

Solution

The solution offered by the RAMBOpreneur for the needy university student provides them the knowledge and opportunity to gain extra income to cover their much-needed daily expenses by doing simple street business part-time.

Their studies will not be affected as they are able to manage their time according to their own schedule, allowing them to still excel in their studies.

By doing the street business 3-4 weekends per month, they can earn the decent additional income of RM300 to RM1500 per month.

This program empowers them with entrepreneurial skills and soft-skills much needed in building their career or business venture in the future.

It is also lucrative enough to become a full-time business upon their graduation indirectly help to reduce the graduate’s unemployment.

Target Beneficiary

Those targeted to take part in ROMBOpreneur Workshop are needy university students from UNIKL, KPTM, UM, UKM, UPM, UiTM and IIUM who aspire to learn how to be entrepreneur and gain extra income through the low-cost, simple street business.

Impact Parameters

The size of the impact is to be measured based on :

1. The income raise by the participants

2. The ability of the participant to be the mentor to guide others to be the RAMBOpreneur.

We aim to conduct 7 workshops with 10 participants each workshop allowing the participants to share the gained knowledge with their friends.

This approach hope to benefit not just the attendees of the workshop, but also spill over to their circle of friends.
