Tokoin.io – Many research studies affirm that the most hindrance to the growth rate of MSME business is the lack of access to funding from financial institutions. Without convenient access to the source of fund, such as bank credit, MSMEs’ business growth will be stuck at where they start off.
For example, a merchant who needs to double his profit has to double his moving capital. Usually, he will resort to using personal wealth or loans from close relatives. However, it doesn’t always work out well as planned. Commonly, he won’t get the exact nominal as desired in the first place.Continue reading “Through Precise Utilization of Use Cases, Tokoin Helps MSMEs to Embrace Financial Inclusion”
Tokoin.io – Targeting the global MSME sector, Tokoin conducted a global roadshow to several countries, including Vietnam as the third country to visit. Following the visits to Hong Kong and Singapore, Tokoin’s introduction in Vietnam also received a warm welcome.
The Vietnam’s roadshow consisted of a panel discussion and a talk show presented by two speakers from Tokoin and two guests who are Vietnamese industry players.
Tokoin was represented by Reiner Bonifasius Rahardja as the CEO of Tokoin, and Gun Hee Lee and Michael Park from Blockcrafters Capital as Tokoin’s advisors.
“As a blockchain platform, Tokoin will provide MSMEs with a digital business ID and a digital ledger to record every transaction carried out by the MSMEs on our platform,”Reiner said
Having a similar business culture to that of Indonesia, Vietnam’s industrial sector is also supported by MSMEs as the driving forces. As one of the developing countries in Asia, Vietnam has attained remarkable economic growth and sustainability. In line with the country’s economic development, Small- and medium-sized enterprises have also experienced exponential growth.
Small and medium-sized enterprises play a major role in Vietnam. Being the country’s economic driving forces, Vietnam’s SMEs account for 98% of all enterprises, 40% of GDP, and 50% of employment. The number of SMEs has risen by around 100,000.
However, despite those phenomenal achievements, Vietnam’s SMEs remain weak in terms of access to business solutions, such as funding and insurance. Credit access becomes a major concern for Vietnam’s MSMEs. Banks which provide commercial loans prefer to allocate their resources to larger firms rather than MSMEs. According to banks, higher default risks, the lack of financial transparency, and the lack of assets for a mortgage are major factors which prevent them from lending money to SMEs.
As a person who has for long been involved in the MSMEs world, Reiner really understands how difficult it is for MSMEs to accelerating their business.
“There are more than 400 million MSMEs in developing countries, comprising of more than 90% of the world’s businesses. Thus far, MSMEs have had difficulties in accessing business assistance from financial institutions. They are constrained by the requirements for the credibility of the business. And this happens because they can’t provide a complete record of financial transactions.”said Reiner Rahardja
By using blockchain technology, Tokoin is able to assist Vietnam’s MSMEs in building credible credit scoring by recording every transaction.
“By combining a digital identity and a digital ledger, Tokoin will be able to provide MSMEs with credit scoring services. With proper technology implementation, Tokoin facilitates MSMEs to record every transaction as a set of data that can be used to achieve financial transparency. This technology provides MSMEs with valuable assets which help them to embrace economic inclusion,”added Michael Park

The common problem who strain the growth of MSMEs often said is the difficulties to find the business fund. MSME lacks access to funding that strains them to expansion opportunities. World Bank studies say that there are around 200–245 million MSME that couldn’t earn business loan.
Though many have agreed that business loan will assist MSME to growth, still there are always happened rejection cases of business credit appliance.
There are two types of requirement stated by banks for MSME credit appliance; (1) The general requirement in the form of a legal document who will prove the validity of a business unit, (2) The credit appliance through Capital and Collateral.
Credit appliance through legal documents
Credit appliance requires the applicant to provide some documents in order to obtain credit or funding from financial institutions. On the first step which is the KYC, MSME couldn’t even fulfil the necessities. Many of the MSMEs are still operating in an unauthorized way, we call it “the informal” sector.
Lackness of legal documents also burdens them to do their financial report. They often fail to provide credible management and financial record. Not only the informal MSMEs, the formal MSMEs are also often couldn’t provide a proper financial and transaction record to be reported.
Even when they have already qualified in the term of economy capacity, document incompleteness of legal documents and transaction record of their daily business operation makes them still unbankable.
The capital and collateral credit appliance
Next, are Capital and Collateral. Most of MSME do not possess any property which can be utilized as collateral. Ironically for MSME, because they need this as collateral to obtain credit and funding in order to expand their business. Most financial institutions loan requires collateral as the mechanism of its mitigation risk.
This difficulties of credit absence situation often lead them to access individual credit, even sometimes with a high and unmeasurable interest rate. This could be harmful to MSME’s business growth.
However, there is another safer option for MSME to grow. Utilizing the technology infrastructure to make a structured, compiled record of their data in the form of valuable asset.
Tokoin facilitates the MSMEs with the processing and distribution of data between related participants of the digital business ecosystem. If only the MSME could provide a better, complete and competent data in the form of valuable asset, the bank could obtain substantial and appropriate information about the character and credibility of a business unit. In Tokoin, data information from MSME will be validated as the asset that contains values.
