BNI and HARA collaborate to create 1,000 successful Agripreneurs in Indonesia
After successfully digitizing data that provides access to microloan programs for farmers, the partnership between BNI and HARA continues to digitize dan develop Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs).
BNI and HARA formalized their relationship at the launch event called “Mencetak 1,000 Agripreneur Desa” on October 15, 2019, in the Tuban Regency Hall, East Java. The national program to support local retail kiosks or “Depo Tani” aims to revolutionize Indonesia’s food and agriculture sector using data as part of the agenda to prepare for the Industry 4.0.
“I hope that our children and future generations will be able to enjoy a high quality of food produced by farmers supported by the Depo Tani,” said Regi Wahyu, founder of HARA, in the opening ceremony.
Key attendees include representatives from various government agencies, such as the Expert Staff of Minister of Economic and Maritime Affairs, Raden Edi Priyo Prambudi from the Coordinating Ministry of Economic Affairs, Director of the Resources Management and Information Technology, Denny Setiawan from the Ministry of Communication and Information Technology, and the Head of Tuban Regent, H. Fathul Huda.
HARA, the initiator of the Depo Tani program, has been a consistent pioneer in the use of data and technology to accelerate growth in the Indonesian agricultural sector. To date, HARA’s programs have covered more than 400 villages throughout Indonesia with more than 27,000 smallholder farmers. Through the HARA ecosystem, it is expected that kiosk owners, or Agripreneur, will be able to access a large customer base.
The Depo Tani program aims to develop the long-term businesses of agricultural MSMEs by increasing knowledge, skills and character of kiosk owners through a series of capacity building programs in entrepreneurship, agricultural techniques, and food processing. Each kiosk will be equipped with store management systems that simplify the digital sales recording. Therefore, if eligible, Agripreneurs can easily apply for financial services from BNI such as Program Kemitraan Bina Lingkungan (PKBL), Kredit Usaha Rakyat (KUR), and Micro Commercial Credit.
In the event, 350 kiosk owners received three types of business management training in strategy, financial management, and technology utilization delivered by experts including the Indonesian Accounting Association. The event culminates in the signing ceremony of the Depo Tani program agreement between BNI and HARA, reaffirming the working relationship and commitment between the two to bring exceptional Agripreneurs. There was an announcement of several Agripreneurs who passed the selection would get the financing program from BNI.
Ronny Venir, Senior Executive VP of BNI, wished the Depo Tani program could create entrepreneurs and new businesses supporting the implementation of Agriculture 4.0. In line with his statement, Raden Edi Priyo Prambudi stated that the use of collaborative technology in agriculture will attract younger generations to promote and develop businesses in the sector.
The collaboration between BNI and HARA is expected to bring entrepreneurial value to Depo Tani kiosk owners through financing and technology.
