Grab-Pegadaian Provide 0 Percent Interest Loans for Drivers

Jakarta, CNN Indonesia - Grab in collaboration with PT Pegadaian (Persero) Magelang Branch presents the "Pawn of Concern" program intended for GrabCar and GrabBike driver partners in Magelang.

Pawn Care is a business capital loan of up to Rp1 million with 0 percent interest for driver partners who want to also start a business by becoming a GrabKios partner.

This partnership is part of the #TerusUsaha program to support the quality of life for casual workers (gig workers). Given the economic contribution generated by casual workers including MSMEs is very large for Central Java.

Head of West Indonesia Grab Indonesia Richard Aditya said the venture capital loan with zero percent interest is expected to benefit the driver partners so that they can survive in the midst of a crisis.

"This program is also in line with the long-term commitment of GrabForGood presented in Central Java to change the view of 'hard due to the plague', to the spirit of #TerusUsaha in welcoming new opportunities and together with technology," Richard said based on his official statement, Semarang, Thursday (23rd) / 7).

Moreover, continued Richard, the average income of Semarang GrabKios agents surveyed experienced an increase in income, so they claimed they did not need to increase capital to increase their business and even open up opportunities for banking access such as investment and loans.

"The average GrabKios Semarang agent's income has increased 12 percent to Rp13 million per month since joining."

Meanwhile, Central Java Governor Ganjar Pranowo welcomed Grab's move to encourage SMEs in Central Java.

"International surveys say, we are the most helpful nation and I invite friends from the business world to synergize in this matter. Grab is part of this chain cycle in part of digitizing the way of trade and transportation and delivery."

Ganjar continued, the #TerusUsaha program was part of the way to solve the community problems that are happening now. According to him, Grab had taken the second principle of Pancasila, 'Just and Civilized Humanity' and the #TerusUsaha Program became its concrete form.

"I am happy that the #TerusUsaha program has an encouraging philosophy because what can change our destiny is our own. For those who continue their efforts will surely succeed," said Ganjar.

For information, for driver partners who are interested can find loan information through the GrabBenefits feature in the application and exchange it at the Pawnshop Magelang Branch with the opportunity to get a business capital loan of up to Rp1 million with an interest rate of 0 percent.
