The Perak government has launched a kiosk assistance programme for women small traders (Biznita) to enable them to operate their business from home, with the COVID-19 pandemic still not over.
State Women, Family and Community Development Committee chairman Datuk Dr Wan Norashikin Wan Noordin said the government had allocated RM350,000 for the programme this year, involving 215 Biznita kiosks.
“This kiosk is specially designed for women and the OKU traders. It is easy to be carried around and can be folded into the car, and this year we are giving it in time for Ramadan so that the women traders can continue to generate income to help their families from home,” she said.
She said this when met after the handing over of the kiosks by Menteri Besar Datuk Saarani Mohamad in conjunction with the Menteri Besar with the People’s Programme (MESRA) today.
The state government, she said, would also launch the BizBro programme after Ramadan for the male traders.
