: Perak Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abd Kadir has reminded entrepreneurs in the state to use the money obtained from loans wisely when starting up or expanding their businesses.
He said this was to prevent them from misusing the money for other purposes.
"The state government has always been committed to help and guide the entrepreneurs to ensure that they possess good entrepreneurship values and excel in expanding their businesses.
"I would also like to advice those who received the business loans to have self-determination, discipline and do-not-give-up attitude," he told reporters after opening the Entrepreneurial Group Economic Fund (Tekun) Fundamentals of Entrepreneurship Seminar here Sunday.
Zambry also said some 28,000 Tekun borrowers in Perak had received the loans totalling RM358 million since 1998.
