INDUSTRY.co.id - Revolving Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises Fund Management Agency (LPDB-KUMKM) under the leadership of Braman Setyo brings a new paradigm to be an inclusive or open institution, so that a strategic partnership of LPDB revolving funding is established with the agency in charge of cooperatives and SMEs in the region.

"The impression I want to convey is that so far the impression that appears on the level of service that LPDB is exclusive, therefore I want this institution to be inclusive, not exclusive, otherwise we have no friends," Braman said in a coordination meeting with the heads the office in charge of cooperatives and SMEs provincial level throughout Indonesia in Batam, Riau Islands, Wednesday (13/09/2017) night.

LPDB-KUMKM will make the cooperative and SME partner a strategic partner in the revolving fund distribution program in the region. Cooperative and SME offices will be the spearhead for monitoring and evaluation (monev), as well as seeking revolving funds that have been distributed.

"I wish that the presence of the entire Indonesian service will be able to assist us in this evening, we are looking for the formula to how we can build strategic partners between LPDB and the offices," said Braman.

LPDB seems so exclusive that at the time of disbursement of funds rolled out to cooperatives and SMEs, offices are not involved, and even the value of capital reinforcement assistance provided by many that is not known by the local Office whereas the office has the obligation to foster cooperatives and SMEs in their respective regions.

"This is what we will do together, I want later when the co-operatives are in their respective areas after approval from LPDB, we will inform how much money LPDB disbursed to the local Dinas," said Braman.

Braman wants the revolving funds to be delivered to the right target, ie to a partner who really qualifies eligibility. For example for the category of quality cooperatives, and SMEs whose business activities are productive. It is therefore important for official involvement to assess the feasibility of cooperatives and SMEs.

"Many cases are happening now, so I hope the service can be synergized, of course, how we work together in order to channel the revolving funds is not hampered," he said.

Braman revealed that the distribution of funds revolved more tendencies in Java. This is because the law does not allow LPDB to open branches in the region. Therefore, Braman encourages local governments to establish a Regional Public Service Agency (BLUD).

"This is a solution that can accelerate, become a smooth channeling of funds, for example Tangerang, Banten, make BLUD itself, while the others have not dared, therefore I hope the provincial service can form BLUD," said Braman.

In the same place, Head of Planning Bureau, Ministry of Cooperatives and SMEs Ahmad Zabadi stated support Braman Setyo policy that wants to become LPDB-KUMKM as an inclusive institution. Given the openness of this revolving fund financing access can be established strategic partners between LPDB-KUMKM with cooperative and SME service.

"I am very supportive that with the new management, LPDB is inclusive, it is felt that LPDB is still exclusively rada, and the proof cannot know in detail the revolving funds distributed," said Zabadi.

Head of Cooperative and SME Office of East Java Province, Mas Purnomo Hadi proposed the necessity of signing a memorandum of understanding (MoU), or Cooperation Agreement (PKS) in forming strategic partners. So there are levels of coaching from the district-city level, to the province.

"I think it is better to do (PKS) to improve the quality of service in all lines, so that all can run smoothly, so there is no cover-up in the implementation of revolving funds," said Mas Purnomo.

Purnomo is convinced that counseling through gradual disbursement of revolving funds can be targeted, appropriate to return, or reduce the risk of misappropriation at the cooperative level.  According to Act No. 25 of 1992 on Cooperatives Cooperative and SMEs, as a coach cannot be directly involved in terms of assessing the feasibility of prospective partners LPDB-KUMKM.

"Unless those who ever get revolving funds from our government are obliged to do coaching with the notes that the proposal is done in stages, when starting from the bottom I am sure the target is right on time," he said.
