Enterprise presents a 5-part series showcasing entrepreneurs who have found their "Merdeka". In this series, we speak to entrepreneurs about their trials and tribulations, the battles they’ve faced, the blood, sweat, tears and of course money ... for their "My Merdeka" moment. On our second episode, we’re featuring Afiq Iskandar and Jiman Casablancas, the duo behind the inherently Malaysian Tarik Jeans. We ask them about starting an apparel line, distinguishing themselves in a crowded market, and making Tarik reflect local pride and pop-culture.
