AwanTunai's 3 Culture Pillars
Execute fast and independently
Experiment and improve
After spending a considerable amount of time in establishing Go-Jek, Rama chose to take a break from his work. However, occasionally he still accepts invitations as a speaker related to the development of the start-up industry in Indonesia. One of the cities he visited was Surabaya. While in Surabaya, Rama met a friend and invited him to visit Bangilan, an area in Tuban, about 2 hours drive from Surabaya.
There, Rama chatted with local residents who made farming as his main job. Starting from this conversation, it turns out that they have a lot of financial problems, especially in matters of capital. So far they have had difficulty getting access to finance from banks and they have no other option but to get a loan from local money-lenders who charge them with very high interest rates.
Rama then decided to provide those farmers with a lower interest loan. Afterwards, the response was very positive. All farmers feel helped by this loan. And from this experience, Rama finds out that there are many Indonesians who still need an affordable access to financing.
Rama saw this as a good opportunity to help Indonesians who need those access to financial support. Starting from this, Rama decided to establish AwanTunai. Together with Dino and Windy, they have a vision to provide affordable financing for MSME players, which will later advance and empower people to grow and develop.
AwanTunai is an award-winning, VC-backed financial technology company revolutionizing Indonesia’s FMCG supply chain. Led by ex-Silicon Valley, fintech, and ex-GoJek executives, they provide wholesalers and micro-merchants with app-based and data-driven digital services, including affordable inventory purchase financing, integrated online ordering, and lightweight inventory management. Founded in 2017, they began with a goal to provide sustainable financing for Indonesia’s unbanked and underbanked micro-merchants and have since expanded to digitizing to improve the operations and cashflow management of their network of wholesalers and micro-merchants.
Since 2017, AwanTunai has secured over US$24Mn in equity and debt financing from prominent venture capital firms and financial institutions like AMTD Group. They also work with regional financial institutions including UOB, OCBC, and JTrust, and have secured a full permanent fintech license from Indonesia’s OJK.
