Jakarta, 21 March 2023 - Bank Central Asia Tbk's (BCA) commitment to promoting national economic growth by strengthening MSMEs persists. BCA's support for MSMEs is once again reflected in its commitment to channel up to Rp20 billion worth of People's Business Credit (KUR) to laundry entrepreneurs.
BCA partners with PT MLC Indonesia and PT Triton International in this KUR distribution program. The focus of this KUR program is to provide access to credit for people in the laundry business who are often capital-constrained.
Head of BCA KCU Alam Sutera Branch Warni Setiawan said, “The laundry business is one of the promising businesses for the MSME segment. BCA believes that expanding access to capital to these business entrepreneurs can encourage this industry to continue to grow while supporting the development of MSMEs, which is one of the main pillars of the national economy.”
BCA is partnering with BCA Multifinance to support the effective operation of the KUR distribution. The company provided a KUR limit of Rp10 billion to PT MLC Indonesia and Rp10 billion to PT Triton International in this program. The loan is expected to be absorbed by laundry entrepreneurs, especially to provide quality washing machines.
As information, PT Triton Internasional has been the official distributor of Maytag washing machine equipment in Indonesia since 2009. PT MLC Indonesia is the official distributor of LG commercial washing machines in Indonesia and the initiator of coin laundry and self-service laundry in Indonesia since 2017.
BCA partnered with PT Triton International and PT MLC Indonesia to improve access to capital for MSMEs, particularly in laundry services.
BCA;s sustainable finance portfolio reached Rp183.2 trillion in 2022, growing 14.9% YoY. This accounted for 25.4% of BCA's total loans disbursed, with MSME financing representing 55.8% of the portfolio. Additionally, KUR distribution increased by 134% YoY.
“In addition to providing capital for MSMEs, we hope that this KUR distribution can indirectly create jobs in the laundry industry. As a national bank, we are committed to supporting the development of MSMEs as one of the pillars of the nation's economy,” said Warni.
