“Mitra Bisnis Keluarga” (MBK) is a microfinance institution that uses the Grameen Bank methodology. MBK provides working capital to low-income women in Java, Indonesia, to give them access to formal and cost-effective financial services (financial inclusion), reduce their vulnerably, and improve their lives.
Since launching its operations in 2003, MBK has now become one of the largest Grameen-style microfinance institutions in Indonesia. MBK hopes to contribute to the government’s Millennium Development Goals, particularly in fighting poverty and empowering women.
