Video Maker for Production of Video Documentary on Branchless Banking for Farmers

PROGRAM SUMMARY:  At the end of 2014, the Financial Services Authority (OJK) issued a
regulation on implementation of Branchless Banking for Financial Inclusion
(known in Indonesian as LAKU PANDAI). With the issuance of this regulation, it
is hoped that groups in the community that have lacked access to the products
and services of commercial banks will gain better access. Since March 2015, the
OJK has granted approval to several commercial banks to implement LAKU PANDAI,
whereby these commercial banks will have agents that will provide financial
products and services to previously un-served segments of society. From January to July 2016, Mercy Corps Indonesia, through the Agri-Fin
Mobile Project, has partnered with one commercial bank and seven Farmer Group
Unions as agents of the commercial bank to conduct a pilot of Branchless
Banking to improve access for 1,300 farmers in seven villages in Pagelaran
Subdistrict, Malang District to the products and services of the commercial
bank using their mobile. Based on the profile of the farmers who have
registered and used the Mobile Financial Services through the seven agents of
the commercial bank, from mid-September to October 2016 training is being
conducted on business development and branchless financial services for 600
female farmers/ farmers’ wives in five villages in Pagelaran Subdistrict.   Responsibilities of Consultant[Describe
