Financial services is the one among the strategic sectors in an economy. In order to provide provide optimal benefits for the community, the availability of some financial service’s infrastructures is important. Banks and non-bank financial institutions are needed to accelarate some productive sectors. The problem is, the availability of banks and non-bank financial institutions is still relatively limited. One of the economic sector that is very potential to be developed as a support for the national economy is the micro and small enterprises (MSEs). Ironically, MSEs is a sector that is actually less touched by financial services, both banks and non-bank financial institutions. Related to those conditions, the Creative Economy Agency encourages micro and small enterprises (MSEs) to adopt digital technology in their business. By digitalization of their business, MSEs are expected to get business financing more easily.
