After having opened its first branch in Singapore, Bank Rakyat Indonesia (BRI), one of the leading commercial lenders in Indonesia, has now launched Indonesia’s first ever floating bank, named Teras BRI Kapal, in a bid to make banking services more accessible to people residing in the country’s remote islands or coastal areas. This first floating branch will serve the banking needs of residents in the Thousand Islands regency off the coast of Jakarta. In the future BRI plans to send boats to other remote areas.
