BPR KR, or Bank Perkreditan Rakyat Karya Remaja, was found to registered Rp 141 billion in bad loans, which the Indramayu Regent, Nina Agustina, discovered.

Previously, Nina has publicly stated this case started well before she took office, however, Nina promised that her party would seriously assist law enforcement officials in thoroughly investigating the BPR KR bad loans case.
"We are very serious about dealing with bad loans. This is because it concerns the sustainability of BUMD and most importantly the money belongs to customers, belongs to the people of Indramayu, not groups or individuals," she said.
