Chairman of the Board of Commissioners of OJK Wimboh Santoso said in a statement received in Jakarta on Friday that the establishment of Islamic finance institutions is part of a financial inclusion program that includes role models such as pesantren caregivers.

The program was launched in order to improve access to finance to small communities and address the issue of inequality and poverty that is in line with current government programs.

"The Shari'ah MFI aims to improve welfare through community empowerment within the pesantren environment.The main characteristics of this institution are group counseling and approaches, not raising funds from the community, funding sources from donors, and channeling financing with low yields, 3 percent equivalent, "explained Wimboh as quoted by Antara.
