In 2014 MICRA officially became a partner to BSR as the implementation institution for HERfinance program in Indonesia. HERfinance is a part of the global HERproject, which aims at empowering low-income workers in developing countries. It promotes gender equality through workplace programs focusing on health, economic empowerment, professional development and women’s rights.
Targeting low income workers, this program seeks to effectively spread the knowledge about simplified financial management to bring improvement to worker’s household. As it has been proven all over the world, the program creates a good impact on worker’s financial behavior and performance in the workplace. The target of the project is to help workers to understand the importance of financial management in control of their household’s income and spending.
