Fintech JULO Teknologi Finansial has marked four years of operation as a verified peer-to-peer (P2P) lending institution in Indonesia by organising an JULO Virtual Run for Charity.
JULO distributed essential needs and cash donations to three non-profit organizations in Jakarta.
JULO is an Indonesian startup and provides access to credit to more than 300,000 underbanked people. It sees the importance of creating social impact for the nation beyond providing financial solutions to its customers.
Around 100 JULO employees took part over ten days in November 2020. Each participant was encouraged to complete a 10 km run each, where each kilometer was converted to donation value. All together, the JULO team successfully hit 1.730 km in total which translated to a 17 million rupiah donation.
A distribution of donations was held on Saturday, December 19th 2020 to Dorkas Orphanage, Karya Kasih Nursing Home and Indonesia Care for Cancer Kids Foundation (YKAKI). Each organization received packages of health supply, toiletries, primary foods and a cash donation.
JULO Charity committee member Tyasha Putri said: “Although we couldn’t meet orphanages and elderlies in person to obey the COVID-19 health protocols, the whole Charity activity went smoothly with the handover of donation packages to the three organizations. I am thankful that JULO still has an opportunity to share to those in need amid the unfortunate situation.”
