Owner of a fleet of fishing boats
Saidi (Mat) bin Haji Ghani, fleet owner
Kota Bharu, Kelantan
Encik Saidi comes from a fishing family but he is an entrepreneur at heart. He has expanded his father’s single fishing boat into a fleet of five.
His daily routine is simple. He gets to work very early so that he can meet his boats when they return and then oversee the unloading and sale of the catch. Then he spends the rest of the day working in his modest office at the harbour. He is very proud of his achievements so far but it is obvious that he has no intention of resting on his laurels.
