Aspire, Meta and Bank Aladin to boost digital presence of SMEs in Indonesia
By Gloria Mathias
Aspire, Meta, and Bank Aladin have joined forces to empower Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in Indonesia. This partnership introduces a unique offering of productive loans in the form of credits for SMEs, made readily accessible through the Aspire corporate card.
This initiative enables businesses to tap into the vast potential of digital advertising on platforms like Facebook and Instagram with ease and efficiency.
Many smaller internet marketers encounter difficulties when trying to pay for their Meta campaigns with traditional cards, leading to delays in their campaign efforts and preventing them from maximising their potential. This process also results in a significant waste of their time and resources.
The collaboration between Aspire and Meta allows the Aspire Card to be accepted as a payment method within the Meta platform.
Ferdy Nandes, General Manager at Aspire Indonesia, stated, “Our goal is to lift these hurdles, enabling SMEs to maximise their potential, including access to market their businesses easily. We are committed to simplifying financial processes and helping hardworking SMEs grow in the digital age with an all-in-one business solution tailored to the market.”
Chief Commercial Officer of Bank Aladin Syariah, Stefen Loekito, commented, “Bank Aladin Syariah’s commitment to supporting Indonesia’s economic growth, especially in the MSME sector, by providing support through digital banking services that are in line with sharia financial principles. Bank Aladin Syariah always prioritises banking convenience for customers and provides easy and efficient access for MSMEs. We believe that the collaboration between Bank Aladin Syariah, Aspire, and Meta is one of the keys to supporting the online presence of MSMEs to expand their market.”
Aldo Rambie, Head of Industry at Meta, shared, “This collaboration aligns with our vision for innovation and leverages the extensive reach of Meta’s platforms. We’re committed to supporting MSMEs to expand their digital presence and contributing to their success by opening access for them to reach a wider audience.”
Aspire’s partnership with Meta underscores a shared commitment to fostering the growth of SMEs in Indonesia.
