Social Finance and Social Enterprises: A New Frontier for Development in Indonesia


This report details the social financing landscape in Indonesia, providing an in-depth analysis of the country’s regulatory framework for social finance, a portrait of social finance activities and social enterprises in Indonesia, and a framework for impact monitoring. The area of social finance has garnered a significant amount of attention over the last couple of years. A myriad of communities, reports, forums, and interest funds have sprouted up around the Southeast Asian region with Indonesia as a focus. To provide perspective to this growing attention, ANGIN had taken the liberty to look into the social finance ecosystem in Indonesia, dissecting the different layers of the ecosystem, the regulatory constraints affecting social enterprises, as well as the demand-side, supply-side, and support side that comprises the social finance ecosystem.
