According to IFC website, the project, which bodes well with IFC’s financial inclusion agenda in Indonesia, involves a loan facility to PT. Bank Tabungan Pensiunan Nasional Tbk. The proceeds will be used to fund the growth of the Bank’s micro and small and medium enterprises businesses and loans to women borrowers. This facility will in turn allow BTPN to increase access to finance for the segments of the population that are currently underserved. As the facility will have a longer tenor than usual deposits, the project will also help BTPN to strengthen its balance sheet structure by reducing its asset-liability maturity mismatch. It is expected to have the following development impact:
1. Increasing the Bank's ability to provide access to finance to MSMEs, which will in turn stimulate growth, creates jobs and help reduce poverty. BTPN will be able to increase its outreach, incorporating millions of new entrepreneurs to the formal financial sector.
2. Increasing access to finance to women borrowers at the bottom of pyramid and women-owned SMEs which helps address the significant financing and capacity gap faced by women in emerging markets.
3. Increasing outreach to population in remote areas through digital banking allowing more individuals obtain formal financial services.
BTPN is a publicly traded bank in Indonesia and its shareholding structure is as follows: (i) Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation (“SMBC”, 40.0%); (ii) Summit Global Capital Management (“SGCM”, 20%), TPG Nusantara (8.4%); (iii) the public (30.2%); and (iv) IFC (1.4%).

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF IFC
The Compliance Advisor Ombudsman (CAO) is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an IFC or MIGA- financed project. If you submit a complaint to the CAO, they may assist you in resolving a dispute with the company and/or investigate to assess whether the IFC is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. If you want to submit a complaint electronically, you can email the CAO at CAO@worldbankgroup.org. You can learn more about the CAO and how to file a complaint at http://www.cao-ombudsman.org/
