Jakarta, TechnoBusiness ID (English Edition) • Kredivo, a digital credit platform based in Jakarta, on Tuesday (22/6) again obtained an additional debt facility of US$100 million from Victory Park Capital Advisors, LLC.
The debt facility is additional funding from the investment company from Chicago, United States, which in July 2020 had also disbursed US$100 million to Kredivo.
Thus, within one year, Kredivo has obtained a debt facility from Victory Park Capital worth a total of US$200 million.
According to Umang Rustagi, CEO of Kredivo Indonesia, the funds will be used to meet credit requests from 10 million Kredivo users in the next few years.
“The funds available through this collaboration will be able to accelerate our business scale in 2021 and in the following years,” he explained.

“We are very impressed with the resilience and growth of Kredivo’s business,” said Gordon Watson, partner at Victory Park Capital, in a company statement.
According to him, Kredivo represents a unique combination of growth, business scale, risk management and financial inclusion in one of the most attractive emerging markets in the world.
