LINKING BANKS AND SELF-HELP GROUPS IN INDONESIAThe idea of linking banks and financial self-help groups gained international attention when the United Nation’s ‘Third International Symposium on the Mobilization of Personal Savings in Developing Countries’ emphasized the necessity of both formal and informal financial institutions for rural development, and recommended linkages between them. (United Nations 1986) As a follow-up and on the basis of an outline of basic principles of the linkage approach (Seibel 1985), the Asia Pacific Rural and Agricultural Credit Association (APRACA) and the German Agency for Technical Cooperation (GTZ) formulated the new program of Linking Self-help Groups and Banks in Developing Countries (Kropp et al.
Indonesia was the first country to translate the concept of linking banks and selfhelp groups into practice. A preparatory survey (Gadjah Mada University 1987) pointed to the development potential of financial self-help groups, on the one hand, and their limited capacity in meeting the credit demand of their members, on the other hand. On the basis, Bank Indonesia, Indonesia’s central bank, elaborated the program proposal ‘Linking Self-Help Groups and Banks to Promote Savings Mobilization and Credit Delivery in the Informal Sector in Indonesia’ (Bank Indonesia 1987). Reviewing the strengths and weaknesses of formal and informal financial institutions, the proposal suggested the establishment of business relationships between banks, self-help promotion institutions (SHPI) and financial self-help groups. In late 1988, Bank Indonesia in cooperation with the German Agency for Technical Cooperation (GTZ) launched the linkage project with the purpose of making viable financial services available to self-help groups of small farmers and entrepreneurs, thus contributing to the improvement of the rural financial system in general. By July 1994 the training program had involved 2,300 bank and SHPI employees, and 11,000 board members of 3,700 self-help groups.
1,493 self-help groups had received an accumulated loan amount of Rp. 13.5 billion through the intermediation of 24 banks and 58 SHPI. (Bank Indonesia 1994)
