Indonesia’s micro and small businesses make up an extensive customer base of some 120 million enterprises yet only 27% of such companies currently have access to financing facilities. Microfinance has proved to be highly lucrative in Indonesia and it is estimated that the number of micro and small enterprises taking microloans will double over the next three to five years. Outside of Indonesia’s main cities is where the largest untapped market lays presenting the need for greater presence through dedicated microfinance branches to take advantage of the high equity return rates that Indonesia’s microfinance industry has to offer.
