To set-up a business does not mean that we require a large capital or need to rent or even have our own shop. What is important is the ambition to venture into business and be prepared to face any challenges that await an entrepreneur, regardless if they are small or large scale. Business or sales through cube stores is currently becoming a trend amongst the increasing number of entrepreneurs in the country. The Mualaf or New Converts Development Section through the Muallaf Capacity Building Unit, Islamic Da'wah Centre in collaboration with Bank Islam Brunei Darussalam Berhad, BIBD has taken the initiative to assist new converts entrepreneurs to enhance the country's economy through Cube Al Qudwah.
The Cube Al Qudwah vendor space contributed by BIBD aim to provide an entrepreneurial opportunity to the new converts to make sales and at the same time promote their respective food products. The new convert entrepreneurs are using the Al Barakah Incubator to produce food products and sell it through Cube Al Qudwah.
Through the cube store, the new convert entrepreneurs can venture into the food industry using the experience gained during the cooking skills courses taken. The business ventured into can help entrepreneurs to learn, understand and practise the skills available in entrepreneurship aside from giving them the opportunity to plan and arrange the strategy to promote their respective products.
The public wishing to buy the food products made by the new converts, can go to Cube Al Qudwah at Darul Huda Building, Islamic Da'wah Centre, Kampung Pulaie. The Cube is operational from 7.45 in the morning until 12 noon and from 2 to 4.30 in the afternoon.
