AMPANG Jaya Municipal Council (MPAJ) has cooperated with Maybank and FGV Holdings Bhd to ensure success of its cashless Ramadan bazaar in Taman Melawati.

By encouraging cashless transactions among entrepreneurs, the initiative is in line with the council’s objective to develop Ampang Jaya into a livable digital city by 2025.

As an incentive, Maybank e-Wallet (MAE) Group will distribute RM500 to six entrepreneurs who collect the highest amount of cashless transactions as well as the most sales throughout Ramadan.

A RM2 subsidy is given to customers with a minimum RM10 purchase, subject to terms and conditions.

In addition to that, tents and aprons for sellers at the bazaar were sponsored by MAE, Saji and Seri Pelangi under Delima Oil Products, a subsidiary company of FGV Holdings Bhd.

They were also offered products at a discount by Saji and Seri Pelangi for ingredients such as cooking oil, condensed and evaporated creamers, coconut milk and margarine.

The strategic partnership between MPAJ and Maybank with FGV Holdings Bhd was intended to reach the goal of sustainable urban development.

This year, MPAJ has approved 835 Ramadan bazaar temporary licences for 16 locations under the council’s administration, including 128 plot sites at Taman Melawati Ramadan bazaar.
