JAKARTADAILY.ID – Customers of Bank Perkreditan Rakyat Karya Remaja, or BPR KR, are paying the price for the bank's series of bad loans.
The bank had registered Rp 141 billion in questionable loans and currently has insufficient liquidity to meet its obligations to its customers.
Facebook account Indramayu Update reported that BPR KR customers have been protesting and requesting the help of Nina Agustina, the Regent of Indramayu, to recover their missing assets.

BPR KR is a Regional Public Company, therefore it is owned by the Regional Government.
On Monday, March 20, 2022, customers protested in front of the BPR KR office, wearing all black to symbolize mourning.
Kunaeni (42), a resident of Sukaurip Village, Balongan District, shed tears when she made a speech using a loudspeaker pleading for the Regent of Indramayu to come and meet the masses.
Kunaeni said that the money she entrusted to BPR KR was not hers, but belonged to the mosque congregation, or jami'ah she is a part of.
As the money is missing and cannot be withdrawn from the bank, she has been pressured by her congregation.
Kunaeni told journalists that dozens of members of the mosque congregation would come to her house and demand that she return the money.
She said that every time she visited the bank, the staff would always have an excuse and leave her coming home empty-handed.
This is also what made her agree, along with hundreds of other customers, to hold protests.
BPR KR Indramayu has since opened a Complaint Service for its customers, on March 20, 2023.
This was revealed from the announcement by Diskominfo Indramayu.
