The form of support for MSMEs through banking is the distribution of capital loans to MSMEs affected by the pandemic, while the government has assigned Askrindo to carry out the PEN program guarantee.

PT Askrindo, which is a member of the Insurance and Guarantee Holding Indonesia Financial Group or IFG, continues to fully support the PEN program through guaranteeing working capital loans for medium, small, and micro enterprises (MSMEs).

“We carry out this government assignment as well as we can, just as we run the People’s Business Credit Guarantee (KUR) program which is still ongoing,” said PT Askrindo’s Director of Operations, Erwan Djoko Hermawan.

He added, through the PEN program, the economy is expected to recover faster.

With the various stimulus provided by the government to MSME actors as well as the National Economic Recovery (PEN) program, it is a bright light to make the business wheels of MSMEs turn again.
