Bank BTPN has been providing financial services across Indonesia since opening in Bandung in 1959.   The well-being of its customers has been a strong part of their vision.

In October 2010, BTPN officially launched 3 pilot branches practicing the Grameen methodology of microfinance. After an extensive gap analysis, Mifos was chosen to manage the operations of these branches.  Customization of Mifos to meet BTPN’s requirements is being led by Satriadi and his team as BTPN prepares to open up 17 new branches in early 2011.
