Mitra Bisnis Keluarga (MBK), or “Family Business Partners”, is a regulated MFI and licensed as a non-bank finance company operating in Indonesia. Using the Grameen Bank methodology, MBK provides working capital to low-income and unbanked women mainly in rural areas of Java island, to give them access to formal and cost-effective financial services, reduce their vulnerability, and improve their lives.
Since launching its operations in 2003, MBK has now become one of the largest group-lending MFIs in Indonesia.
In 2015, MBK had about 580,000 clients (100% women), of which 75% are below the poverty line.
In 2019, the number of clients more than doubled to 1.2 million and its portfolio tripled in size.
An original feature of MBK is that women represent 99% of the staff, including all the loan officers and the CEO. Between 2015 and 2019, MBK hired about 700 additional staff per year on average. MBK is SMART (Client Protection) certified since 2014.
BIO’s investment - in syndication with FMO - would support MBK in further growing their portfolio. The loan will be denominated in local currency, protecting the institution and their clients against currency risk.
