From 2020, we have seen many inspiring stories of resilience have emerged in what has been an unprecedented year, and to close it off, we tell one such story from our portfolio.
Despite the negative impact of COVID on lending and financing businesses in Indonesia, AwanTunai has been able to grow their loan book 2x, secure an OJK lending license and raise a $20 million debt facility all while keeping their NPLs below 1%. They also leveraged on the COVID opportunity to digitize more services for SMEs, introducing new products like AwanToko and AwanGrosir. They were also recently awarded first in the ASEAN Fintech category for the MAS Fintech Awards 2020.
And who better to get on-call from AwanTuani than a leader who’s been driving this growth on-the-ground? Windy Natriavi, AwanTunai’s chief product officer and co-founder, shares with us the ingredients for AwanTunai’s resilience.
