Modalku and Buka Pengadaan Collaborates for MSME Financing
Modalku collaborates with Bukalapak regarding the financing of MSMEs in the BukaProcurement ecosystem. MSMEs in the ecosystem can get financing of up to IDR 500 million with a loan duration (tenor) of up to 60 days.
This collaboration provides convenience for MSME actors who have joined the BukaPengadaan ecosystem, both buyers and vendors, in obtaining business capital financing.
Especially in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, which is still ongoing, so that MSMEs can continue to grow without worrying about cash flow problems.
The signing of a memorandum of understanding (MoU) between BukaProcurement and Modalku was carried out at the end of July 2021. Represented by Modalku’s Head of Growth and Partnership Arthur Adisusanto and BukaProcurement Director Hita Supranjaya.
The collaboration targets financing for hundreds of MSMEs, both from the buyer and vendor categories in the BukaPengadaan ecosystem.
Modalku’s Head of Growth and Partnership Arthur Adisusanto said, this collaboration is one of the company’s steps to invite MSMEs to #BangkitBersinar and continue to grow at this time.
Modalku continues to strive to be the digital funding platform of choice for MSMEs by providing services that suit the needs and characteristics of their respective businesses.
“Together with BukaPengadaan from Bukalapak, we are committed to meeting the needs of businesspeople in terms of procurement of goods. We hope that this synergy can be one of the solutions to the obstacles faced by MSME actors in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic,” said Arthur through his statement, Wednesday (18/8).
He said, the joining of Modalku to the financing sector for MSME actors in the BukaProcurement ecosystem in the midst of this pandemic situation is a form of the company’s concern for the community affected by Covid-19. In addition, it is a strategic step in building financing inclusiveness in Indonesia.
