CGC is a state-owned government institution mandated to cater to the financing needs of small and medium enterprises in Malaysia. It was incorporated in 1972 and since then CGC is playing a pivotal role in economic development of the country by providing a wide-range of products that include: loan guarantee and financing facilities; advisory services; and credit information. In cooperation with SME Corp Malaysia and the Credit Bureau Malaysia Sdn. Bhd., CGC is also delivering credit rating services. About 430,000 SMEs have so far benefited from CGC.

One of the areas in which the Malaysian financial sector did not focus was financing the needs of Startups. Although there was a great demand in the market but since catering to Startups was considered highly risky by the mainstream financial institutions, CGC launched the BizMula-i scheme. Under this scheme, Startups can get financing without track record and without collaterals. Another special feature of BizMula-i is that it is a Shariah-compliant product and therefore very attractive for the Muslim population of Malaysia.

Through introduction of this product, CGC is making a significant contribution in economic and social development in the country. It is supporting the entrepreneurship culture in Malaysia and thereby strengthening the very foundation of the economy.
