ANSARA (Persatuan Bekas Pelajar Sains MARA) to which I belong has initiated their own co-operative called ASMARA (Koperasi Anak Sains MARA Berhad). Their official website is www.asmara.com.my and I think it is a very good and noble idea. Membership is open to former and current students and staff of MRSM. Initial investment is only RM1000 and there is an option of RM50 monthly subscription. It has a quite impressive list of pro-tem committee members and it has also already outlined its future business projects. Let's just hope it will become amongst the most successful co-operative in Malaysia.
