PUTRAJAYA, Jan 18 (Bernama) -- Mara Digital which started operating on Dec
8 recorded a sale of RM1.7 million in its first month, according to Rural and
Regional Development Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.
Located at Menara Mara Kuala Lumpur, it offers communications and
information technology (ICT) goods and services by 38 bumiputera
Five telecommunication companies - Maxis, Celcom, DiGi, Umobile and Red One,
and two internet network service providers, P1Wimax and Fiber@Home are also
operating at the premises.
"Mara Digital charges the same price as other popular ICT shopping centres," he
said at the monthly assembly for his ministry here Monday.
Ismail Sabri said Mara Digital was one of the transformations by his ministry to
create a high income techno-hub for youth entrepreneurs.
"In the context of producing more ICT entrepreneurs under the entrepreneurial
development holistic model through this centre (Mara Digital), Mara materialised
wholesalers, anchor tenants, marketing platforms, entrepreneurial training and
finance facilities," he said.
Ismail Sabri said two more 'Mara Digital' would be opened at Anggerik Mall,
Shah Alam and Damansara by June this year, while Terengganu would have one
Mathematical facts :
RM1,700,000.00 sale in the first month by 38 entrepreneurs. Means........
RM44,736.84 sale for each entrepreneurs per month on average. Means........
RM1,491.23 sale for each entrepreneurs per day on average. Means.......basically only 1 reliable cheap smartphone sold per entrepreneur per day. I would say that, it is bad having bussiness running like that. Anyhow, this just the first month after starting its operation. Hopefully, MARA help those entrepreneurs to promote The 'MARA Digital' in the heart of Kuala Lumpur more extensively rather than start planning to open more and more and more and more outlets.
