“We’ve included this Bogor cooperative to our loan and credit restructuring program. Members of the cooperative have expressed their difficulties in paying their remaining installments totaling Rp 1.9 billion," said Teten.

"Thus, the obligation to pay the remaining installments has been postponed for a year, or at least it doesn’t have to be paid yet. That way they will be able to keep their business afloat and that of their members,” said Teten during a press conference on June 28.

As one of the recipients of the ministry’s financing programs, the Bogor cooperative has received a loan twice.
