Banking services for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are considerably scarce in the Southeast Asia region and only less than 60 per cent of them gain access to loans, according to news reports.

SMEs in Malaysia comprise of 98.5% of the country’s business community and contribute more than one-third to our economy.

However, they are often faced with problems such as failing to get a prompt update from banks on the status of their applications or having difficulty comprehending the different products offered.

SME owners want to be passionately engaged in their business and be involved in every detail or decision made for their companies.  

Time is so valuable for SME owners but they are spending seven hours a week performing administrative work.
