Penang State Government through PDC has created an initiative since 2009 known as Projek Titian Saksama Rakyat (PTSR Micro-credit Scheme) with the purpose to assist in creating a system to provide additional capital to petty traders and small businesses . The main objectives of the programme are :
(i) to offer additional capital to entrepreneurs;
(ii) to inculcate saving culture; and
(iii) to create networking for entrepreneurs.
In making this programme a success, an allocation of RM11 million has been set aside. As at 1 February 2017, a total of 2,483 petty traders and small businesses have benefited from the scheme with a total disbursement of RM12.76 million.
