    The challenge of Microfinance to develop

    The IT system is the "HEART" of the Microfinance Institution (LKM). To be able to operate efficiently and effectively it requires reliable, scalable, and secure IT system support.

    However, there are challenges faced by Microfinance Institution in developing IT systems to support their business, such as:

    In digital age, Integrated Banking IT applications are widely used by large financial institutions to serve customers online. This is a demand from customers who expect convenience in their transactions.

    BI and OJK regulations indirectly respond to demands from customers by investing in information technology.

    Chairman of the Board of Commissioners of the Otoritas Jasa Keuangan (OJK), Muliaman D Hadad (10/7/2017) mentioned the problems faced by Conventional / Sharia Credit Banks (BPR-BPRS) and Savings and Loans / Sharia Cooperatives (KSP-KSPS) both from the external side and the internal side.

    On the other hand, for middle-sized and smaller financial institutions, such as most BPR / BPRS and KSP / KSPS, the implementation of integrated IT turned out to be a challenge. The challenge is represented by the question, whether the large IT investment will enable more rapid business development in the future, or whether it is only a waste of expenditure, without producing an adequate return.

    1. Facing Competitors in the Small Micro Segments (LKM, Credit Union, Fintech) 1. Cost overruns
    2. Potential customers / members are reduced 2. Impact on interest rates
    3. Products and services have not varied

    One of the ways to stay competitive in the modern world is the integrated implementation of Information Technology. There are BPR-BPRS and KSP-KSPS who have already carried out this proposal, who have a turnover of hundreds of billions of rupiah and are willing to invest and implement IT which enables new services to support their business development.

    The Role of Microfinance Institutions to support Small and Medium Enterprises

    According to the McKinsey Institute, "Indonesia has more than 59 million MSME actors who have contributed as much as 56 percent of the country's total economy". These MSMEs need financial service support, for example capital to develop. But in reality, there are obstacles in the banking industry and the MSMEs themselves so that financial service support cannot be fully implemented.

    As an alternative, there are Microfinance Institutions such as BPR, BPRS, KSP, KSPS and Fintech companies to help these MSMEs to continue to develop, for example by channeling credit to MSMEs in remote areas / provinces. And now, microfinance institutions have become a very important part in the growth of MSMEs, which ultimately contribute to Indonesia's economic growth.
