Who is our customer

VIH Capital Pte Ltd (“VIHC”) is wholly owned by Validus Investment Holdings Pte Ltd (“VIHPL”) which is a Peer-to-Peer (P2P) digital lending platform operator for SMEs in four countries across the SEA region. It aims to address the significant financing gap faced by SMEs with the purpose to fuel their growth and drive job creation and local economic prosperity.

What is our funding objective?

Loan proceeds will be earmarked for SME financing in Indonesia. VIHC will deploy the funds through the Group’s local platform operated by PT Berdayakan Usaha Indonesia (aka “Batumbu”). The Batumbu platform is fully licensed by the Indonesian Financial Services Authority (“OJK”) and extends productive loans to credit-constrained and underserved SMEs by following an upstream and downstream supply chain approach, thereby creating sustainable ecosystems and driving SME growth through financial inclusion. A considerable part of its loan book is targeted at rural and youth-owned (entrepreneurs under the age of 35) SMEs.

Why do we fund this investment?

Validus and its local platform Batumbu contribute to bridging the multibillion financing gap for SMEs which are a key contributor to the Indonesian GDP and provide stable employment supporting livelihoods and economic growth. Batumbu leverages technology and, in conjunction with its unique partnership model, benefits its clients with easy, fast and flexible credit that enables them to reach their potential. By providing stable, long-term and matching currency loan financing, FMO promotes the group’s strategic objective of extending its own balance sheet lending operations.

What is the Environmental and Social categorization rationale?

The project has been assigned an E&S risk category of C. Loan applications are screened against an exclusion list and there are no IFC PS transactions.
