The job search platform targeted at rural-living Malaysians, Solviepro, offers those locals a method to find meaningful employment with the benefit of flexible hours and employer choices. The firm launched in April 2017, initially aimed at university students that needed additional income, but shifted towards rural populations after experiencing stronger interest and response from them.
According to research, approximately 54.8% of Malaysians who were job hunting in 2017 took three months or more to find employment, with almost 9% spending over a year to find a position. Many in rural Malaysia still openly suffer from a lack of wages to purchase basic day-to-day needs like food.
Due to these circumstances, rural Malaysia has been targeted by the country's government as a priority, and one solution has come in the form of Solviepro, the job search platform founded in 2017 by Muhammad Abdul Haiy, CEO, with a trio of partners: Mohd Ikmal Ahmad Zaihidi, Abdul Qayyum bin Halid, and Muhammad Al Fateh.
“We founded with the mission to provide the opportunity for university students to earn a side income without disturbing their tight schedule,” said Haiy. “But when we launched at Seri Manjung, our services not only attracted students, but also the low-income community between 17 to 35 years, which now consist 60% of our user base.”
