Only 36% of Indonesia’s population is connected to formal financial institutions, leaving an estimated 110 million unbanked citizens due to banks’ high fees, lack of consumer trust and long distances to branches.

GOVERNMENT ASSISTANCE AND SUPPORT

The Indonesian Government is supporting Digital Financial Services through an emerging series of new regulations which are aimed at improving fnancial inclusion and access for unbanked citizens. For example, new legislation is helping banks to reach out and assist low-income micro-consumers to open bank accounts, receive and distribute savings and achieve other fnancial activities, all without minimum deposits or monthly admin fees.

Branchless banking and digital fnancial service schemes with mobile-based agents are also being developed and the Financial Services Authority (OJK) has issued consumer protection regulations regarding electronic payments processing.
