Reality TV on NTV7 this July on Udang Galah

I have got an update from a friend and at the same time the contestant for a reality tv programme that will be air at NTV7 Malaysia on 7 July 2010.

The genre about the same as the Apprentice, with the major sponsors is DIGI.

The unique matter that I salute this contestant is, he is proposing for FRESH WATER PRAWN PROJECTS!!! Brave... and the udang galah industry will be on TV not just Astro. More media coverage means more exposure to the masses.

If he wins, better for us. The government and the banks sure will support the grower from now on yeah...


Good luck Razi (ex trueaqua marketing man)


He is nervous but he got good airtime lol, I think a full minute, free exposure, pakai seluwau pendek lagi, lepak tepi kolam, Nasty

Bank Loans Facilities from Agro Bank

I am planning to apply a loan from Agro Bank, Kota Tinggi Branch for RM 50,000 to develop my new udang galah ponds nearby Kota Tinggi, Johor.

The loan will only cover the costs of preparing the new 4 ponds (the land can accommodate 16 ponds), buying pumps, blowers, food pellets, and management costs for 5 months. My partner and I will fork 10k for the development.

Please remember that this loan is from the government scheme funds but you have to fit into the basic banking rules, either you have to produce guarantor or charge a physical collateral such as your land or house.

Why only 50k? Because the scheme offers:
  1. up to RM 15,000 without guarantee
  2. up to RM 50,000 with 2 guarantor
  3. more than RM 50,000 if you present physical collateral
Please check these links to special government funds offered by Agro Bank.

Please check here for Commercial Loan with the bank.

Please also drop a visit to your nearest district branch because loan amounting less than RM 50,000 will be handle by the district branch, not the state office, but eventually they will table your application at their state level meetings. And remember to get some recommendation letters from the Penghulu, Village Head or your YB!

Hoping to get the approval soon..wish me luck
