CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITIES
The Company, through part of its business group, teamed up with Sampoerna Retail Community (SRC), a collective of small-scale retailers under the guidance of PT HM Sampoerna Tbk as part of Sampoerna Group's effort to nurture and modernize SMEs in Indonesia. On 9 July 2019, the two parties announced their partnership to introduce the Pojok Bayar platform, which acts as an educational tool to learn about the benefits of digitalization for small retailers.
This platform empowers owners of small-scale retail shops under SRC's guidance, numbering around 110,000 shops, not only to expand their business scope beyond selling groceries and sundry, but also to sell digital products and become a payment point online bank (PPOB) for the communities in the area.
The Company, along with part of its business group, namely DMI, facilitates the Pojok Bayar platform and also provides digital products and payment services for SRC, to boost revenues of retail SMEs in Indonesia.
Up to now, there are approximately 110,000 SRC small-scale retailers spread across Indonesia and all have received educational empowerment using Pojok Bayar. Membership features are also available on Pojok Bayar, thus opening up new opportunities for SRC members and their surrounding environment.
