INDUSTRY.co.id - Yogyakarta - PT. Bank Rakyat Indonesia (Persero), Tbk. committed to provide assistance to village-owned enterprises (BUMDes) built in various areas of work. This time, Bank BRI in cooperation with PT. Lion Express (Lion Parcel) made a breakthrough by creating a partnership concept by making BUMDes Guided by BRI as Lion Parcel Agent.
This cooperation agreement is set forth in the Memorandum of understanding between the Director of Institutional Relation of Bank BRI Sis Apik Wijayanto and the President Director of Lion Parcel Farian Kirana witnessed by the Minister of Village Development of Disadvantaged Regions and Transmigration of RI Eko Putro Sandjojo, President Director of Bank BRI Suprajarto and President Director Lion Group Edward Sirait, in Gunung Kidul, Yogyakarta, Friday (25/5).
In this opportunity, Bank BRI encourages 5 BUMDes to become Lion Parcel Pilot Agent by providing motorcycles, computers and printers to facilitate running operations as Lion Parcel Agent. The five BUMDes built by BRI are BUMDes Maju Mandiri Gunung Kidul, BUMDes Wiguna Utama Pemalang, BUMDes Jaya Sejahtera Tasikmalaya, Sukadamai Sukabumi BUMDes, and BUMDES Bangkuyung Pandeglang.
Sis Apik said that the cooperation is the result of collaboration between Bank BRI and Lion Group in order to grow BUMDes. Through the offices of Lion Parcel, BUMDes is expected to help ship delivery expeditions while increasing business scope. "Technically, for shipment to an area that has no Lion Parcel network, Lion Parcel will forward the package through BUMDes, and then BUMDes will deliver to the recipient. Similarly vice versa, the shipment of the sender will be accommodated in BUMDes, inputted into the system, and then BUMDes will forward it to Sub Parole Lion Parcel," said Sis Apik.
Currently Bank BRI has made approximately 14,000 BUMDes as BRI partners where 2,008 of them have become Agent BRILink. In the future, the synergy between BRI Bank and Lion Group that has been well established so far can continue to contribute positively to the realization of community welfare fairly and equally, especially for rural communities through BUMDes.
