According to the bank website, the project will support the expansion of its wafers, biscuits and snacks factory in Majalengka. The Project is expected to cost US$133 million of which US$33 million is from internally generated cash.
Project-level impacts are expected through employment creation both during the construction and operation phases as well as through economic activities along the value chain, especially at the downstream end with Nabati's extensive sales force and distributors. It will also increase tax revenues in Majalengka, a frontier region in Indonesia where the minimum salary is US$150 per month vs. US$ 200 in the closest largest city or US$ 250 in Jakarta. The Project will also improve incomes of the SMEs which supply materials to Nabati. The Project is also expected to contribute to food security for bottom of the pyramid consumers. The new facilities to be funded by IFC will produce low market pricing products which are fortified with vitamins A, B1, B2, B6 and B12 (currently ~80% of Nabati's products are fortified).

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/
