TAN SRI SYED MOKHTAR ALBUKHARY
"I started my business in lorry transportation in 1972. I had a permit to own 4 lorries but due to lack of funds, I managed to buy only 2 which was financed totally by MARA."
"What fascinated me was that the Mercedes-made lorries were bought from Cycle and Carriage at Jalan Tunku Abdul Rahman, Kuala Lumpur and the MARA office which gave me the loan was also at the same road."
"After three years conducting the business, I managed to settle all loans and my business was growing. The number of lorries which I owned also increased from the original two.
"In fact, when I first began my rice supply business, I had the support from MARA which helped me to supply rice to a MARA subsidiary company, Senama Bhd."
"I'm very grateful to MARA which has been helping me from the very beginning of my business. MARA had successfully been playing a big role in assisting Bumiputera entrereneurs like me to develop."
