With the Movement Control Order (MCO) reimposed, we are back to staying at home and practising physical distancing as much as possible

Unlike the first MCO that was implemented last year, MCO 2.0 allows for most sectors to operate as usual. In spite of this, many businesses are still heavily impacted.

With movements limited and dine-ins restricted, kopitiams, nasi lemak stalls, soya bean lorries and more, are struggling to sustain their businesses. Additionally, many lack the proper incentives and knowledge to engage with food delivery platforms. 

Let's not forget that with Chinese New Year festivities coming up, merchants preparing for the festive season are bound to face setbacks. Places that sell bak kwa, yee sang, CNY cookies, and other delicacies face challenges to reach out to customers. :(

If you're looking for ways to directly support local hawkers and merchants, check out Maybank's Sama-Sama Lokal, an online platform to help small businesses <3

Since the first MCO implementation last year, Maybank has been supporting and helping local businesses thrive.

In fact, since its launch, Sama-Sama Lokal has processed close to 50,000 orders, and has over 4,400 merchants on the platform. The brand has launched multiple promos and deals including the RM1 banana leaf deal, RM10 musang king promo, and even fresh flowers delivery all the way from Cameron Highlands! Now, the platform has a wide range of merchant categories such as hawker food, restaurants, groceries, health, fashion, and many more for you to choose from. 

What's also cool about Sama-Sama Lokal is its user-friendly delivery platform, as the brand knows there are local businesses and customers that are less tech savvy. Plus, Maybank covers delivery fees of up to 5km, to ease the burden for both customers and merchants.

From now until 24 January, Sama-Sama Lokal has awesome promos and highlights so you can order and enjoy while supporting local brands
