As KoinWorks develops a broader ecosystem for MSMEs, I am committed to sharing my knowledge and contributing my abilities for the success of these crucial endeavors.”

“Frank will serve as a pillar for KoinWorks with his sharp analytical skills, strong character and good values.” said Chief Executive Officer of KoinWorks, Benedicto Haryono. “With the same vision, we believe we can enable our teams to become stronger, be steadfast in our goals and persevere as a fintech company that is aggressive in our mission to boost the MSME sector in Indonesia.”
KoinWorks' MSMEs-focused neobank was introduced to the public in April of 2022 as KoinWorks NEO. MSMEs owners now have easy access to much-needed features like borrowing for capital, making payments, sending money and creating financial reports. These integrated financial services have empowered MSMEs in less than four months with 90,000 NEO accounts and 120,000 NEO Cards created. With its new achievements, KoinWorks will continue pursuing its vision for an inclusive and flourishing economy for all levels of Indonesian society by evolving as a neobank through KoinWorks NEO.
