    After only two years on the scene, UangTeman, Indonesia's first online lending service, which allows Indonesians in Jakarta, Bandung, Yogyakarta, Solo, Magelang, Surabaya, Semarang and now Bali greater access to quick and transparent loans, has become a lucrative business

    UangTeman chief executive and co-founder, Aidil Zulkifli said there is certainly a market to be tapped in Bali, with 35% of Balinese still not having access to mainstream loans.

    UangTeman is one of a few local fintech companies who use a balance sheet lending model, which means it distributes funds from its own pocket instead of passing funds from individual or business lenders in a peer-to-peer business model.

    "There has been a shortage of lenders in Indonesia who are actually responsive to the needs of their customers," Aidil told the Jakarta Globe in Denpasar, Bali, on Sunday (05/02).

    According to Aidil, many people in Bali who have little access to borrowing money end up borrowing from middlemen or loan sharks.

    "UangTeman's presence in Bali will make it easier for local communities to access the service, because everything is done online," Aidil added.

    In January, UangTeman launched their iOS app to cater to increasing demand and allow more access to the service.

    "Our ultimate goal is simple, to make one-click loan available on whatever device or system you’re using and in a fair and transparent way," Aidil said.

    I recall when Citibank called in outstanding loans in Jakarta...an important legislator was found dead when the Ambonese debt collectors visited. hati, hati!
