Boost, the fintech arm of Axiata, is offering SMEs financing of up to RM100,000 with its ‘Capital Plus’ scheme, made available through its digital lending subsidiary Boost Credit (formerly Aspirasi).

‘Capital Plus’ is a Shariah-compliant micro-financing facility based on Commodity Murabahah, ideal for SMEs. It offers financing from as low as RM1,000 up to RM100,000 over a 15-month tenure at a low profit rate of 1.2% per month, with no repayment of principal for the first three (3) months. SMEs do not need any guarantor or collaterals to apply for this financing.

For the merchants on the Boost platform who apply for ‘Capital Plus’, they will enjoy a seamless application process not taking more than 10 minutes and funds being disbursed within 48 hours.

According to the SME Association of Malaysia, as the country progresses into the endemic phase, cash flow remains a pressing concern for SMEs as businesses recover and resume operations.

Sheyantha Abeykoon, CEO of Boost said, “The pandemic has posed many challenges for MSMEs to continue running their businesses. For most MSMEs, the challenge of maintaining steady cashflow weighs heavily on their minds. In this recovery process, we believe that it takes a collective effort. We are committed to being a reliable partner for our merchants and underserved MSMEs in the country in easing their financial burdens by increasing access to affordable financing.

“One of the key aspects we have incorporated into ‘Capital Plus’ is a three-month moratorium for SMEs. We hope that SMEs will find this micro-financing facility helpful in giving a boost to their recovery journey and provide them the much-needed capital to re-start their businesses.”

Boost Biz merchants can apply for the financing through the Boost Biz merchant app by tapping on the ‘Do More’ tab followed by the ‘Financing’ tile. Alternatively, merchants can contact their assigned Boost representatives to find out more about ‘Capital Plus’.

In conjunction with the Lunar New year, from now until 28 February 2022, the first 100 Boost Biz merchants who successfully apply for and receive a minimum financing amount of RM10,000 with Capital Plus, will earn an extra RM100 cash-back under the ‘Huat More with Boost Biz’ campaign. This cashback will be credited directly into the merchant’s registered bank account. Terms and conditions apply.
