CreditAccess entered the Indonesian market in 2012. We selected Indonesia as it is the fourth most populous country in the world and considered one of Asia Pacific’s most vibrant democracies, achieving significant economic growth in the past years. The financial sector, however, is relatively underdeveloped and the country is considered significantly underbanked. 78% of the Indonesian population , around 199 million people , are considered unbanked, making it one of the largest unbanked countries in Asia. The Indonesian financial market presents unique differentiation elements versus its Asian peers; A younger population, a limited credit penetration and a steady GDP growth are supporting the development of the financial market.
We have successfully grown our greenfield operations over time to be one of the largest Non Banking Financial Company (NBFC) in Indonesia, operating through our trading name PT Bina Artha Ventura (local brand Bina Artha).
