Indonesian P2P Lending Platform KoinWorks Raises S$16.5 Million in Series B Funding

The company, established in 2016, provides a platform for lenders and borrowers. Its target audience is small and medium-sized enterprise, which have historically been underbanked or unbanked. KoinWorks uses machine learning to help borrowers get lower interest loans but provide good returns to the lenders. They provide both business financing and invoice financing services to the customers.

Changing the Indonesian financial landscape

According to co-founder and executive chairman Willy Arifin, KoinWorks helps in democratizing finance in Indonesia and helps in spreading financial inclusion. He said that the platform has the largest retail investor base in the country with over 300,000 users. The oversubscription in Series B funding shows that investors are ready to bring more liquidity to the platform that existing investors are ready to share. He noted that it doesn’t reflect the “true appetite” of investors.

Their co-founder and CEO Benedicto Haryono noted that the company had served a huge chunk of the retailer market in Indonesia. The company’s growth is being supported by factors like increased awareness about early investments. Interestingly, over 60% of investor-lenders on the platform are millennials, and more than 70% users on the platform made their investment using KoinWorks.

EV Growth partner Willson Cuaca said that KoinWorks is a unique fintech company in Indonesia that fills the gaps between convenience and access in providing loans and investment products. He noted that the investors are impressed with the rapid growth of the company. EV Growth is a joint venture between Sinar Mas Digital Ventures (SMDV), East Ventures, and YJ Capital Inc.

Quona Capital co-founder and partner Ganesh Rengaswamy said that KoinWorks’ platform had had a dramatic impact on Indonesian businesses, especially because of their responsible lending practices. He said that their role in catalyzing the growth of small and medium enterprises in the country could not be overlooked.
