Data to December 2019
In 2019, Opportunity’s partners in Indonesia continued to expand rapidly, with 25 per cent growth across the board. In particular, KOMIDA and TLM continue to grow rapidly, with KOMIDA recently reaching over 745,000 clients. Partners are expanding their services into more remote areas where people have less access to financial services than those in more populated regions.
Opportunity’s partners are deepening their understanding of the needs of people living in poverty whom they serve. They are responding through the expansion of financial products in addition to livelihood loans, for example, loans to improve access to clean water, adequate sanitation and shelter. One partner is exploring how they can better include people with disabilities.
Opportunity’s partners continue to move towards using digital technology to make financial services more accessible and give clients more freedom with transactions. Paperless methods of data collection and cashless transactions will enable our partners to operate more efficiently and safely, both in terms of security as loan officers are less likely to be targeted for robberies, and in terms of health as cash is a means by which communicable disease is spread from person to person.
