Credit for the Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME) sector in Central Java Province grew by 27.19 percent (year on year/yoy) in the second quarter of 2022, driven by Working Capital Loans which grew 28.78 percent (yoy), more higher than the first quarter of 2022 which was 23.31 percent (yoy). Seeing this, the Special Working Visit Team of Commission XI DPR RI also reviewed and heard directly the development of MSMEs in Semarang, Central Java, on Friday (23/9/2022).

The MSME businessmen encountered included Rorokenes which is an MSME that produces artisan leather woven bags, Bengok Craft which is a community-based community empowerment business that focuses on handicraft products from water hyacinth, and Naruna Keramik which is a Ceramic MSME.

Member of Commission XI DPR RI Musthofa who led the visit assessed that the MSMEs fostered by Bank Indonesia (BI) and the Financial Services Authority (OJK) in Central Java have been able to build a strong ecosystem that is not only concerned with profit, but also benefiting the surrounding area.

“The results of the MSME products that are here are really capable of being competitive. This is our hope that MSMEs are not underestimated, the fact that Rorokenes is currently running well, could also export, Mas Roy (owner of Naruna Keramik) also already able to export, and also Mas Firman (owner of Bengok Craft) that water hyacinth could be a good product,” said Musthofa. For this reason, the PDI-Perjuangan politician hopes that the MSMEs fostered by BI and OJK could inspire other MSME businessmen to be able to grow and develop more globally. “I hope this will inspire all MSME actors in Central Java in particular, Indonesia in general, and also the world will recognize these products,” concluded the legislator for the Central Java II electoral district (dapil).
