Bank Islam Partners MESINKIRA to Aid MSMEs in Their Digital Journey

Bank Islam Malaysia has partnered with MESINKIRA, a cloud-based retailing platform for MSMEs, to offer underbanked microentrepreneurs a chance to digitalise their businesses through an end-to end integrated mobile business management solution.

Microentrepreneurs that will benefit from the collaboration are Bank Islam‘s microfinancing customers under iTEKAD Programme.

The iTEKAD programme was established by Bank Negara Malaysia to assist low-income microentrepreneurs to strengthen their financial management and business acumen towards generating sustainable income.

Through this partnership, microentrepreneurs will be able to digitally record their sales, accept multimode payments as well as do inventories, business expenses, and bookkeeping which eventually generate a proper financial statement of their businesses in the future by using MESINKIRA’s mobile app.

The integrated bookkeeping functionality linked to the business’ current account also empowers microentrepreneurs to improve their creditworthiness.

MESINKIRA’s integrated solution also helps microentrepreneurs to go cashless and safely receive digital forms of payment, like cards, digital payments, near-field communication (NFC) payments, and e-wallets.

Bank Islam will also leverage MESINKIRA’s Impact Dashboard solution to assess the microentrepreneurs’ performance. This will enable the bank to analyse the microfinancing programme’s effectiveness.
